Teacher and librarian visits Linden Tree

Linden Tree Children's Recordings & Books in Los Altos has scheduled Andrea Stenn Stryer, author, teacher and librarian, to discuss her new book, "Kami and the Yaks" (Bay Otter Press, 2007), 5-7 p.m. Thursday in front of the store, 170 State St.

"Kami and the Yaks," set in Nepal, is the story of a young, deaf Sherpa boy whose family is in dire straits because its yaks are missing. Though his family does not think he can help in the search, Kami sets off in the opposite direction to find the animals. He uses his heightened sense of observation to compensate for his lack of hearing. Kami faces many challenges in his quest, including a dangerous lightning storm in the mountains.
