Who are those attractive witty people? Why it's Little Junebugs owners, Courtney Collins and Brian Flanagan . . .
Of course, with the party it being PEEP-themed, Peepy was in her element.
Dan Santat and I signed copies of BOBBY THE BRAVE (SOMETIMES) and other books we created!
And lookit! Why, it's author/illustrator Ethan Long . . .
Now then, what exactly is Little Junebugs, you ask, or I ask, or someone over there asks. Why, it's may things, like a whole lot of children's books . . .
And toys . . .
And cool stuff and crafty stuff . . .
And for the anniversary party, there were professional photos of all the party Peeps!
(That's Courtney and me with Peepy.)
And everyone made Peep picture frames!
Of course, Dan and Ethan showed off their mad illustrator-ly skills . . .
Speaking of skills, you gotta see this!!! The last time I saw Mark Crilley, he drew a picture for my favorite doctor. This time, he drew this amazingly realistic picture -- and it's gone viral!!! Is there a doctor in the house?
Oops, let's return from the digression and head back to the party. All the fun made Peepy thirsty. So the kind handsome bartender created a drink just for her. Behold, the (non-alcoholic) Peep-tini!!!
Now fabulosity like this doesn't just happen. It takes a lot of work, as you can see HERE.
HAPPY 1st ANNIVERSARY, LITTLE JUNEBUGS!!!!
And finally here's a fun Q and A I did with for the South Dakota Festival of Books!!! (Don't read it if you are a fan of fine Haiku.)
Wheeeee . . . BOBBY THE BRAVE (SOMETIMES) is now out in paperback!
