This week: puppy, videos, readings, and more!
We got a puppy! Her name is Marlo. She’s from Tennessee and is part black lab part horse? moose? Something big. So far she’s a total dream puppy and mostly likes to hang out getting kibble out of puzzle toys.
Tim made a great video for Brightly where he’s reading Snappsy the Alligator (Did Not Ask to Be in This Book). If you’ve been waiting to hear it in its entirety, now’s your chance (plus Tim does a great job reading it!).
Tim also talked to Papercuts about why he procrastinates.
I did a reading at my local toy store, Treehouse Toys, which was awesome.
And I went to the International Literacy Association conference where this huge line of people (!!!) waited for me to sign their book.
Also I made an alligator dress for the occasion.
Finally, I’m at Kidlit Summer School today, talking about how to get your stories to be fun and surprising with a writing and revision technique I call “the expoding sandwich.”
