In celebration of Jon Klassen's newest book, The Rock from the Sky, the Caldecott winning author and illustrator will be exhibiting new prints from the book along with a small handful of new original art.

About The Rock from the Sky
Look up! From the Caldecott Medal–winning creator of the Hat Trilogy comes a new deadpan gem.

Turtle really likes standing in his favorite spot. He likes it so much that he asks his friend Armadillo to come over and stand in it, too. But now that Armadillo is standing in that spot, he has a bad feeling about it . . .

Here comes The Rock from the Sky, a hilarious meditation on the workings of friendship, fate, shared futuristic visions, and that funny feeling you get that there’s something off somewhere, but you just can’t put your finger on it. Merging broad visual suspense with wry wit, celebrated picture book creator Jon Klassen gives us a wholly original comedy for the ages.
