His Excellency the Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Jon Scieszka (like fresca!) was here on Monday — BEST DAY EVER! You’re pretty much guaranteed that, though, when one of the funniest men in books comes to your store.
I’m still trying to figure out how to get the pictures of our “new to us” digital camera, hence the stock photo. But I have great ones! 700+ kids doing the ambassador salaam? Priceless!
If you haven’t already picked up Knucklehead, walk run to your local indie bookstore and grab yourself a copy. The publisher has got it tagged at ages 10 and up — and when they say up, boy do they mean it! Everyone from our kids to our grandparents have loved this hilarious new memoir.
As soon as I get the pictures ready, you’ll have a frame by frame recap of Scieszka Day. Till then, go forth and read!
