Last Friday I had the opportunity to go to the Dalle's, Oregon, to speak to about 200 K-2nd graders. It was so much fun. I don't think I've done a reading that has gone so well. The kid's were incredibly engaged the whole time. During the cat book I had to tell the kids to wait to do the cat dance when they go out to recess because some kids were already starting to get up on all fours and growl. Crazy! I also read from my new dog book. Here's some of the amazing thank you cards they sent me. There were many great cards, alas, I could not scan them all.

The Super-Duper Dog Park is almost done. I just need to create a title page and then it should be off to the printer. These pages here are part of a long intro that didn't make the cut, unfortunately. There were at least 10 pages of fully colored pages, just like these, that had to be scrapped. The finished book looks awesome though and I can't wait for it to come out. Look for it this fall.
