Children’s author and Wilton resident Rob H. Hunt will be signing copies of his new book, Kyle Evans and the Deadly Plague, at the Toy Chest this Saturday, Dec. 3.

This book is the second installment of an exciting new trilogy about a boy, his cat and his friend Sofia (signed copies of the first book–Kyle Evans and the Key to the Universe–will also be available). After narrowly escaping from an alien zoo, Kyle is looking forward to a normal life once again. Unfortunately for him and his best friend Sofia, his troubles have only just begun. A blue dot that suddenly appears on his elbow signals the beginning of another crazy adventure featuring hungry Gomes, sneaky Pliskins, the mysterious Azda Fains and, of course, the cat who is not a cat–Bootles.
