The Grand Festival of the Arts & Books Program!
The Page & Palette bookstore on Saturday.
I went directly to the children's department...
And spied several books I've been watching for:These are totally adorable!
I blogged about The Man in the Moon here.
Check out the new book trailer:
If you give a dog a donut, he'll ask for some apple juice to go with it.
When you give him the juice, he'll drink it all up.
Then, before you can say "Woof" ... Dog is off on a backyard adventure.
If a hungry little traveler shows up at your house, you might want to give him a cookie. If you give him a cookie, he's going to ask for a glass of milk. He'll want to look in a mirror to make sure he doesn't have a milk mustache, and then he'll ask for a pair of scissors to give himself a trim....
(I blogged about Substitute Creature here.)
The cover is A-M-A-ZING!
Zombie in Love by Kelly DiPucchio
Illustrations by Scott Campbell
Mortimer is looking for love. And he's looking everywhere! He's worked out at the gym (if only his arm wouldn't keep falling off). He's tried ballroom dancing lessons (but the ladies found him to be a bit stiff). He's even been on stalemate.com. How's a guy supposed to find a ghoul? When it seems all hope has died, could the girl of Mortimer's dreams be just one horrifying shriek away?
You know I can't resist giggly-ghoulish creepers .
(The finished product will be a surprise!)
