Happy book birthday to Jesse and Sam-Sam!
I could see the big inside of my Sam-Sam. I had been training him for 252 days with mini tennis balls and pieces of bacon, just to prove to Dad and Mom and Aunt Gus and the whole world that a tiny, fluffy dog could do big things if he wanted to. I think my little dog always knew he could be a hero.
I just wonder if he knew about me.
Children’s bookstores are magical places. Books of Wonder is simply amazing. The original artwork from children’s books, the signed novels–the place is both a landmark and a treasure, and like walking back through the history of children’s literature. If you go to New York City, don’t miss this place, especially if you have kids or grandkids!
Also, their Edgars panel for Juvenile and YA nominees is a total blast.
Once again, the Mysterious Bookshop offered nominees and readers a lovely (and of course, mysterious) reception, this year complete with dark skies, driving rain, and howling winds to increase the spooky ambience. Truly, it was the perfect scene for a murder, but per my understanding, no bodies were discovered.
