Tad Hills came to Mose and Lew’s school last month! The boys are STILL talking about it. ”We got our book SIGNED BY AN AUTHOR, MOM!”
I’m a huge fan of Rocket, and Duck & Goose, and Tad was hilarious and brilliant and awesome. I’m always so jealous when I get to peek into the brains of illustrators…
And I feel so grateful that I get to be the mom at a school where author visits happen. Jerry Pinkney is coming soon!
No matter how many other authors I meet, and no matter how many books I write and publish, my admiration for other people’s art only grows. Each book is a miracle, in its way. Each author is a new brain full of ideas I haven’t had yet.
I’m still the little girl, clutching her book, staring with big eyes at the “real live author.”
It never never never gets old.
