    "Off to the hills of Espana we go.  Grab a tomato...get ready... now THROW."

    Join author Tracey Kyle for a fabuloso fiesta to celebrate the debut of her two latest titles for kids, Food Fight Fiesta: A Tale About La Tomatina and A Paintbrush for Paco. In Food Fight Fiesta, Kyle describes the world's biggest annual tomato fight in Bunoi, Spain, which she plans to recreate on a much smaller scale at Scrawl -- using a slightly softer and less messy version of "tomates" than the Spaniards do!  In addition to leading a great game of tomato toss, Kyle will read A Paintbrush for Paco, a wonderful story about the power of art, imaginacion and color that serves as a fun and memorable introduction to Spanish.

    Join us for a community-wide Shop Local scavenger hunt hosted by Scrawl with participation from local businesses! In July 2018, Waldo spotters, young and old, are eligible for prizes throughout the month. The hunt culminates with a grand ceremony held at our store.  Come into Scrawl to get your gameboard or download and print a copy below and then get to finding.  Thirteen local businesses have hidden Waldo somewhere in their store and when you find him they will mark your gameboard.  Fill in a row or the whole board for prizes!
    In addition the five intrepid travelers (Waldo, Wenda, Woof, Wizard Whitebeard, and Odlaw) have dropped their precious items in our bookstore! Waldo seekers will set out on a search to find Waldo’s key, Woof’s bone, Wenda’s camera, Wizard Whitebeard’s scroll, and Odlaw’s binoculars somewhere inside Scrawl.
