Children flocked to meet author Mary Casanova and illustrator Ard Hoyt, who’ve collaborated on many children’s picture and chapter books including “Utterly Otterly Day,” “One-Dog Canoe,” and “The Dirk Yeller Came to Town.”

Last Saturday, District 112 and the Carver County Library co-sponsored "Hooked on Books" Saturday, which is enjoying its seventh year.

This year Chanhassen High School hosted the event, which drew hundreds of children and their parents for a morning of reading and coloring activities, snack, and entertainment.

Also on hand was the locally based book publishing company Beaver Pond Press, Chanhassen-based illustrator Betsy LePlatt and author/illustrator Colette Omans Nicoletta of Victoria who signed copies of their new books.

Cast members from the Chaska Valley Family Theatre performed songs from the upcoming musical “Oliver!”

Big Bird and Elmo greeted their young fans and posed for photos.
