Bob Abdou, a Columbus-based entertainer most commonly referred to as Mr. Puppet, made a special appearance at the Grove City Library on Jan. 26 courtesy of The Friends of the Southwest Public Libraries. For nearly an hour, the famed ventriloquist and puppeteer delighted children and adults alike with wild tales told by his animal and skeleton friends, dazzled them with several tricks of the eye, and informed them about the magic found within books. In case you missed the performance, Abdou is scheduled to perform at the Westland Area Library on Feb. 23 but here are a few scenes captured at the Jan. 26 event. Here, Volunteer Landon Bridges, 6, of Grove City, helps Abdou during a skit with Kenny the dog.
