The Adventures of Jack the Owl
by Stuart Brafman

A story geared for kids ages 3-8, this book tells a series of tales about an owl and his adventures in Aspen, Colorado. The book evolved from tales Brafman would tell his grandchildren and for the sake of posterity, the stories are now in print for his own grandchildren to share in the future. You too can share these stories with the little ones in your life. Read more about Brafman in this Aspen Time article.

The Furry Mountain Monkeys of Aspen Colorado
by Vince Lahey

A favorite wintertime book by local author and parent Vince Lahey, this story tells the tale of a young boy stranded on the mountain during a blizzard and his ultimate rescue by the furry mountain monkeys. Kids will delight in learning about the green eyes of the monkeys and looking up to the mountain at night to see them roaming around (hint: it is lights of the snowcats in action!). Perfect library addition for any snow-loving family! Learn more about this great hardback children's book on facebook.
