These characters have been brought to life with human like qualities that charm children and adults alike. Leonard Filgate’s richly detailed and highly imaginative paintings accompanied by Susan Yost-Filgate’s magical stories bring to life this wonderful world of fabulous friends whose acceptance of each others differences makes for heartwarming tales of adventure.

The event is Saturday, Dec 3, from 2 to 7 p.m. The artists will bring several original and limited edition pieces and autograph their highly successful Rip Squeak & Friends book series.
