Dot, Dot, Who Drew The Dot?

Can you guess who this Asian kid is?

Yes! It's me. I'm Asian, or to be more specific, I am a Chinese American. You know that that means, right?

Oops. Wrong Dot. Here's what I'm talking about . . .

I first met Peter H. Reynolds by reading his marvelous book, THE DOT . . .

I've also had the fun of meeting Peter in person . . .

Plus, I've had a blast at The Blue Bunny, the marvelous indie bookstore owned by Peter and run by his twin, Paul, and Janet, Paul's wife (did you get all that?) . . .

So when T.J. Shay asked me to create a "Dot," I was like, "excuse me?" Then I saw the website.

Here are some "celebri-dots" created by famous authors, like Peter . . .

A dot? What would I create? That's when I realized that there were dots everywhere in my office!!!!

(Sort of) speaking of libraries (you can read THE DOT in the library), is this the cutest little library, or what? Came across it in my neighborhood. You can read more about the Free Little Library HERE! If you decided to make one yourself, send me a photo and I'll post it on the blog!

Books make lovely gifts for you or someone you know, or someone you may know sometime. If you'd like an autographed book o' mine, order from Vroman's. Be sure to tell them that you'd like me to sign them, and include the name(s) of who the books should be made out to. Then Vroman's will mail it/them to you!"
