Kenneth Kraegel

Grand Rapids children’s author and illustrator Kenneth Kraegel makes a visit to Schuler Books & Music, 2660 28th St. SE, this Saturday, March 25.


Kraegel will present his newest book “Green Pants!” in a special story-time set for 11 a.m. In celebration of anyone who marches to their own drummer, Jameson wears his individualism as his own personal style which happens to be his green pants. When he wears them, he feels like he can do anything. Now he is forced to make a big choice: to where black pants and be in his cousin’s wedding or to keep his signature green pants and not be part of the wedding. What will Jameson decide to do?


Kraegel is the author and illustrator of several picture books including “The Song of Delphine” and “King Arthur’s Very Great Grandson,” which was a New York Times Notable Book and a Wall Street Journal Best book of the Year.
