CitySpace Storytime is a new, virtual series featuring WBUR hosts and reporters reading some of their favorite children's books. WBUR news anchor Sharon Brody kicks things off with "The Big Orange Splot," by Daniel Pinkwater.
About "The Big Orange Splot"
Mr. Plumbean decides to paint his house every color of the rainbow, much to the neighbors' dismay, all because of the big orange splot — caused by a seagull dropping a can of orange paint on his house.
