Spent the first week of December back in MT visiting my folks and doing school visits. It was crazy busy but also hugely inspiring and lots of fun. There was a nice write-up about my visit in the local paper (The Daily Interlake). Also, there was lots of snow throughout my visit. The big-fluffy-covers-everything sort. It was lovely.



I've got dragons on my mind . . .



Rex is excited! In fact, he is so excited he is doing the Koo Koo Kanga Roo Dinosaur Stomp!

Why is Rex so excited? IT'S DINOVEMBER!!! The ingenious idea of Refe and Susan Tuma. Check out their FB page full of plastic dinosaurs coming alive at night: https://www.facebook.com/dinovember. And check out their new book: http://www.indiebound.org/book/9780316294591.

This DINOVEMBER Rex and I have two books to celebrate. Of course, REX WRECKS IT! (Candlewick) and because it is also MOVEMBER, Mo's Mustache! (Tundra Books). Mo, Rex, and I have two upcoming events.

First we'll be at BUTTONWOOD BOOKS AND TOYS at 10:30 AM on SATURDAY, NOV. 8th in Cohasset, MA. Buttonwood will be celebrating Neighborhood Toy Store Day. http://buttonwoodbooksandtoys.com

Next we'll be visiting the Burlington Barnes & Noble at 6:30 PM on NOV. 22.

Then we'll be headed to Montana for school visits the entire first week of December!
