Rumpus! Bad Dog! and a Moon Festival!

First of all, if you are reading this on Monday, remember to VOTE Tuesday. If you are reading this on Tuesday, VOTE today, and if you are reading this after Monday or Tuesday, I hope you remembered to vote!

This is who I am voting for . . .


CLICK HERE to see the other authors and illustrators who stand behind our President.

Speaking of elections, here's a great illustration Dan Santat did in BOBBY VS. GIRLS (ACCIDENTALLY). In the book, Bobby runs against his best friend Holly for student council rep . . .


Okay. So politics aside, after a thousand-ish weeks on the road, I was home for a couple of weeks. During that time this went on . . .

However, other stuff happened, too. Like, I signed books at the Moon Festival! It's put on by the South Pasadena Chinese-American Club. (FYI, I am Chinese American and live in South Pasadena.)


There was lots to see and do . . .

Look! It's our friend Tau Nyeu. Her book, SQUID AND OCTOPUS is sooooooo cute!!!!

In between book signings, I wrote a letter and drew pictures for RUMPUS- Letters for Kids . . .

It's the totally cool thing where you sign up and for a small fee your kid(s) or class(es) get a real letter for a children's book author, in something called a MAIL BOX, twice a month. CLICK HERE for more information.

Psst. Over there! Who's that creating those awesome bonsai plants???

He looks awfully familiar. Could he be the bonsai man in GOOD JOB, KANANI? That's one of the books I wrote for American girl -- and I had to go to Hawaii for fun, er, research . . .

(That's me and one of my instructors. Yes, I took surf lessons. Had to. Kanani surfs.)

Wait! I think it is the same man from the book, and he looks familiar because -- that's my dad and he was in the book . . .


Oh, and on another bookish note, here's a really great movie for teens and people who used to be teens . . .


And finally, there's this . . .



Wheeeee . . . BOBBY THE BRAVE (SOMETIMES) is now out in paperback!
