Speaking of St. James and Let's Eat Pie!

I'm in New York at this very exactly precise moment and will blog that soon. But first, there's this . . .

Last week, on the very exactly precise same day that I drew pictures in the park with author/illustrator Mark Crilley . . .


. . . I traveled to St. James School in downtown Los Angeles . . .

In honor of my coming, they arranged for the In-N-Out truck to be there . . .

(Or maybe it was there for a fundraiser.)

Before my presentation snooped around the library, while Peepy made new friends . . .

Soon it was time to be interviewed by these inquisitive video journalists . . .

While I was being asked questions, my Peep set up the projector . . .


Oh man, those St. James kids are smart and talented! Look what happened when I asked, "How many of you know String Theory, can bake a flourless chocolate cake, and can wrestle an alligator while reading a book?"

Speaking of books, the Smithsonian's Book Dragon has some great things to say about WARP SPEED.

CLICK HERE to read the review.


Speaking of books, some more -- BOBBY VS. GIRLS (ACCIDENTALLY) has been nominated for the 2012 Magnolia (Mississippi) Children's Choice Award AND it's also on the Master List for the Sunshine State Young Readers Award !!!! (I think we should all celebrate this by eating pie. Specifically, Mississippi Mud Pie and Key Lime Pie.)


BTW, one of Bobby's best friends is named . . . ST. JAMES!!! And I went to St. James School to speak!!!

(That's St. James on the right. The boy, not the school.)

Here's a awesomely (sp?) cool review of the book from ProseandKahn.

Alright! Like I mentioned at the top of this blog -- New York (and the fabulous BEA aka Book Expo America) is up next. In the meantime, can you guess who this famous actor is on the right?

(Here's a HINT.)

Plus, look who got to have their picture taken with Peepy!
