Join us at Book Culture on Columbus on Saturday, May 18th at 11am for a special storytime with Allison Pataki and Marya Meyers. They will be reading from their new book, Nelly Takes New York: A Little Girl's Adventures in the Big Apple.

The Big Apple may be hiding in the place you least expect it in this spunky introduction to the best parts of New York.

Nelly lives in New York, the greatest city in the world.

Every morning, she wakes up to the rumble of the subways and the honking of cars.

Every morning, she goes outside to be in the city she knows like the back of her hand—or does she?

One morning, Nelly and her dog Bagel decide to find out what New York is really about—or more specifically, why a city that has nothing to do with apples is the Biggest Apple of them all. Could there really be a giant apple somewhere in New York? And where is it hiding?
