April is National Poetry Month!

Swimming to the Moon

In celebration of National Poetry Month in April, The Frugal Frigate is excited to host the return of children’s poet, Jeff McMahon. Jeff is on a reading/signing tour in Southern California in support of his book, Swimming to the Moon. Words of wisdom, whimsey, and wonder fill this collection of tall tales and silly stories. Swimming to the Moon is an amazing assortment of funny, strange, and unforgettable rhymes that will keep you wondering just what’s coming next! This event is age appropriate for anyone who loves cookies and laughter.
