Swamp Hattie's Lair at Worley Faver Gallery

Entertain the children this weekend with a visit to Swamp Hattie's Lair at Worley Faver Gallery, 11-A Aviles Street in St. Augustine. A literary critic recently wrote: "Now that there are no more new Harry Potter books on the horizon, Swamp Hattie can provide you with your supernatural fix. Dennis' books have elements of The Lord of the Rings and the original Star Wars movies, and, like both of those trilogies, the second Swamp Hattie book concludes with a dark cliffhanger... every single line of these books rhymes with another line, and that's no small feat. With Chris Armstrong's vivid and intricate illustrations, these books are the sort that you'll want to pass along to your grandchildren."  Weekend hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. 904-304-2310
