The Little Greeter– A Grunion Tale
Eileen Ryan McMillen
Sunday, March 24th, 2019 at 2pm
It’s almost time for the grunion to run!
Chaucer’s Books is very pleased to welcome former educator and author, Eileen Ryan McMillen, as she shares a tale of grunion, and a child’s first experience with a midnight run. Do you remember your first run, or– gasp!– have you not yet enjoyed one? Come find out when is the best time to see them!
Mother Nature created both a mystery and a miracle with the creation of the tiny grunion! This nighttime adventure is told from the perspective of the youngest child on his first midnight grunion run under a full moon along the California coast. A grunion run is the dazzling annual spectacle where fish come ashore to twirl around on the beach, as if in a nighttime dance off! This is the only time these fish leave their natural habitat to venture onto land to lay their eggs and the sight is stunning! Accompanied by incredible illustrations this book comes to life! The story reflects family relationships, excitement and anticipation of the unknown, and a truly surprising and unexpected event from Mother Nature that will leave you in awe.
