Thank You Thursdays

Thank you notes from the kids I meet during school visits. 

This drawing arrived after a spring school visit in Newton. I love the owl's feet and that it says "ALTER!" at the bottom.

Back from L.A.

It's been such a busy summer! I've just returned from the lovely wedding of children's book editor Alvina Ling. Here I am with the gorgeous bride and author/illustrator friend Grace Lin (fellow Blue Rose Girls):


We rented this cute house in Venice Beach for the weekend:


From there we explored the area a bit, including the beach in Santa Monica, where Tilly saw shells for the first time:


It was a whirlwind trip, ending with a book signing at Pages Bookstore in Manhattan Beach. Here we are with our lovely host:


Thanks for the great time L.A! Now back to summer here in Happy Valley. Next up: blueberry picking and a trip to the cape!
