Hooray for Book Blogs!

Hey all, did you know last week was Book Blogger Appreciation Week? Well I just found that out on a blog called On My Bookshelf , where there is a lovely review of Pouch! today.

Thanks to Holly for the write-up and for the heads-up.

And Pouch! was recently a Pick of the Day at Hooray for Books.

I for one appreciate the attention of children's book bloggers such as Just One More Book, 7-Imp, Fuse #8, Hip Writer Mama, and now On My Bookshelf. . . and Hooray for Books.

Hooray for Blogs!

Pouch Party!

Last night lots of lovely folks hopped over to Books of Wonder for the Pouch! Publication Party. We read the story, yelled "pouch!", learned how to draw Joey, and took our pictures as kangaroos. There were delicious cupcakes from the Cupcake Cafe and lots of books to sign.

If you missed out, you can still get a signed copy at the store, or order on their web site.

See you at the hop,

POUCH!:The Trailer

Dear folks, in conjunction with the release of Pouch!, here is the trailer for the book.

I have been trying to get this up on YouTube, but due to ongoing file incompatibility woes, I will have to settle on posting a link here for now. Enjoy!


Happiest of Autumns,

PS- Remain on the lookout for Pouch!: the lunch box, Pouch!: the pull toy, Pouch! the breakfast cereal, and Pouch!: the pouch.
