Hey guys! I'm making my first appearance at the Texas Book Festival next weekend!

This is kind of a big deal for me. I'd appreciate it if you would fly to Austin to attend, if at all possible. If you already live there, stay put.

THE SKINNY: Festival organizers are throwing a "penguin party" Sunday morning, Oct 26, in the Read-Me-A-Story Tent.

Caldecott Honoree Molly Idle will be reading from FLORA & THE PENGUIN at 11:30am, and I'll be sharing BABY PENGUINS LOVE THEIR MAMA! at noon.

Don't miss it!
