Just got back from Comic-Con . . .
We'll be blogging about that next. (I'm still trying to recover from the chaos.) But in the meantime, there's this . . .
It's a well documented fact that I likebookish lunches, and I like to lunch with fellow KidLitters. Hmmm, that doesn't sound right. Let me rephrase that -- I like to lunch with fellow authors/illustrators in the KidLit arena.
Not long ago Mo Willems was in town. So a bunch of us met up. It took a bit of wrangling, but everyone finally assembled.
Here's animator/author/illustratorTom Warburton;Cheryl Willems(Mo's better half); author/animator/illustrator (Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!)Bob Boyle; animation background artistTeri Shikasho(Bob's better 2/3rds); author/illustrator/former TV writer (Sesame Street)Mo Willems(seated), author/illustratorDan Santat; TV writer/cartoonist (The Simpsons, Seinfeld)Tom Gammilland author/illustratorMarla Frazee. . .
Luckily for us, Tom took classy photos of us eating . . .
Therefore, if you'd like actual proof that food was consumed,CLICK HEREto be magically transported to Tom's blog.
In other news, look what I got in the mail!!!
Yes! It's the paperback version ofBOBBY THE BRAVE (SOMETIMES). The book will be in stores on August 1.
Now, on a much sadder note,My Labradoodle, who is hypoallergenic and great for families like mine who have allergies, was diagnosed with . . . allergies. It didn't help that she loves to roll around in the grass and pick up burrs and whatnot.
So the vet ordered a haircut. The first ever haircut she's even had. There was much sadness when this tragic event occurred . . .
So let this be a lesson to you. If you want to keep your stylish hairdo, don't roll around in the burrs.
And finally, if you want to catch a great movie, I highly recommendthis one. . .
