Storytime with Maxi Chanel: Super Creatures of the Huron River!

Starting from the edge of Lake Erie, at the mouth of the Huron River, Gilly the Bluegill fish dreams of swimming 130 miles up the Huron River. His path will be challenging, as many dams will block his way, but Gilly is determined to try! As he begins his adventure, Gilly makes a friend named Lilly. Gilly and Lilly set out to discover what type of creature she is, making friends with many Huron River creatures along the way.  Maxi Chanel, an award-winning local Drag Queen star, hosts this storytime reading. Super Creatures of the Huron River was created by Adlerstein, Berge and Fuller.

This book is not available yet. We will announce the release via email. Sign up to our email list here:
