Craig briefs for Dec. 9

Jeffery Stoddard is scheduled to read from his latest book, “Skid and The Too Tiny Tunnel” from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Downtown books, 543 Yampa Ave. The book tells the story of a little skid who discovers that he doesn’t have to be mighty and big to be important.

“Skid” is illustrated with Stoddard’s bold and bright color pictures. He also has created a coloring book about the machines in the stories.

Stoddard is a Moffat County High School graduate. He now lives and works in Colorado Springs but will be in Craig to celebrate the holidays with his hometown and the release of this newest book. Call 824-5343 for more information.
