Local illustrator Timothy Banks
has created a world of delightful whimsy, making monsters into magical, not-so-scary beasts. In his children's book, Monsters in Charleston
Banks explores iconic scenes of the Lowcountry, from Folly Beach to the peninsula, with some colorful, larger-than-life beasts thrown in.
Blue Bicycle Books hosts the official launch
of the book this Saturday, April 22 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be a special book reading and signings. To purchase a copy of the book, visits Banks's site
