Thank you to Blue Bunny Books for hosting me for a storytime on Tuesday, June 21. What a great bookstore!
I also showed this early Snappsy sketch. In early 2015, Tim was playing around with the character, and drew Snappsy in swim trunks, in a giant fur hat, as a cowboy. Usually when I show audiences this sketch, I say, “Here he is as George Washington.” On Tuesday, I said, “He’s Alexander Hamilton” and everyone gasped (it says a lot about Hamilton: An American Musical that all you have to do is say the name “Alexander Hamilton” and people get excited). A day later Eli said, “My name is Alligator Hamilton,” and so now it’s clear we should just get someone to stage an entire Hamilton the Alligator mashup play.
