Alien Tomato Storytime with Author Kristen Schroeder

This will be a very special virtual storytime with author, Kristen Schroeder. Her new book, Alien Tomato, is sure to leave your little ones looking at vegetables differently.

ABOUT THE BOOK: 

When a mysterious red orb appears one day, the vegetables aren’t sure what to make of it. It must be an alien tomato! They name her Allie and try to make her feel as welcome as possible. But Gopher isn’t convinced. He’s sure it’s just a ball… Isn’t it?

This delightfully silly tale and its equally hilarious art are a perfect fit for gardeners and sci-fi fans alike.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  

Kristen Schroeder was inspired to write Alien Tomato, her debut picture book, when her daughter blurted out the title one day. In addition to writing, she owns and manages her own business. Having studied and worked around the world, she now lives with her family in Maple Grove, Minnesota.

Mette Engell is a self-taught illustrator and designer with a background in marine biology. She’s been creating art for children ever since she became a parent. She lives by the ocean in northeastern Denmark with her husband and three children.
