If you think pencil sharpening sounds like fun or you were actually expecting sharks and mermaids in the touch tank, you may be in for a disappointment if you visit the Children's Museum & Theatre of Maine on April 1st! Today, we're celebrating April Fools' Day. Read The Book with No Pictures by B.J. Novak, see the world upside down in our Camera Obscura, and act out our favorite story, The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig!
