Happy Children's Book Week!

I want to thank everyone who came out to Children's Book World on Friday night for their 15th Annual Author and Illustrator Night. It was packed with book lovers and book luminaries such as David Wiesner, Charles Santore, Nick Bruel, Judy Schachner, Roger Roth, Berit Haahr, Gene Baretta, and many others (like me). If you're looking to celebrate this week by picking up some great books, you can't go wrong with the good folks at Children's Book World (there may even be some autographed books still on the shelves).

Thanks to Pam McLean-Parker for taking my first "here-I-am-signing-a-book" photo.
