I Made an Owl

Look! Look what I made! An owl!

Ghouls & Gourds Photos

What a wonderful day at the botanic garden!

As usual, Ghouls & Gourds was a blast. I met lots of families and got to connect with fellow author/artists. There were hordes of cute babies and kids in costume, amazing stilt walkers, and catchy music. And some long-lost friends came to visit.

See all the photos HERE.

I will be at the Early Childhood Center of Park Slope on Nov. 11
and The Brooklyn Museum on Nov. 21.

See you at the next one!

Ghouls & Gourds '09!

Hey all you Halloweensters,

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden's Ghouls & Gourds Festival is this weekend! (Sunday at 12 in the Cherry Esplanade.) Parades, music, kids in costumes, and of course a fantastic crop of local authors and illustrators sharing their books. Hope you will join us! I will be reading Pouch! and I will have my trusty kangaroo cut-out for funny photo ops!


See you in the garden,

PS- There is a chance we could have our baby in the next few days, so. . . I might have to ask you how it was!

Pouch! at the Children's Museum of Manhattan



Holding them, chewing them, turning the pages: Even the littlest people can get something out of a book!

. . . As shown by this 2-year-old little guy at the CMOM event last Saturday. He was telling the story to mom, with "POUCH!"-es and everything. This kid is into books! (Well, his mom is a librarian.)

He is doing a great job of showing the pictures, by the way. Took me quite a few readings to learn how to do that.

More pics of this event to come!

Bookishly yours,

CMOM Reading Tomorrow

Hi all,

The hickory nuts are falling here in Forest Park, which means it is time for fall book events!
And the very next one is tomorrow at Children's Museum of Manhattan. Swing on by at 11 AM for a reading and wacky kangaroo photos, and leave with a freshly signed copy of Pouch! in your pouch.


See you in the museum!
