Visiting Los Angeles

Kros-Oscah. We just received a private tour of the Jim Henson Creature Shop and we are absolutely floating!

The irony of coming across this on a Monday. I should get lasagna for dinner...

After a whirlwind trip to Los Angeles, I have returned to Boston on a red-eye flight to find Lunch Lady greeting me at the airport. 

Reading Together

I wrote Punk Farm when I was 25 and single. Here I am reading it, at 40, to my three kids on a Sunday morning because my son is constantly requesting it. These giggles are the most satisfying of any reading I’ve ever given of this book, and there have been thousands of readings at this point...

Porgs and pugs.

Happy Birthday, Beverly Cleary!

Happy 102nd birthday, Beverly Cleary! I celebrate Ms. Cleary’s work in every school visit I make—I share images of the books that I read as a kid that helped inform the author and illustrator that I am today. I am so thankful for Ralph S. Mouse and his motorcycle.
