This unique children's story includes additional information on each page of text for the adult reader. Icons and illustrations help the children follow the adventure on the map of Porter past.
The book's three creators will sign copies of "Johnnie's Adventures" from 2 until 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2, at Ashker's Coffee House, 400 Main St., Youngstown.
