I've been a little MIA this week. Thing 2 and I are both sick. The virus is definitely affecting my brains so forgive me if I am a bit incoherent.
Thing 1 managed to get a new blog post up though. She's so cute when she dictates. She says, "One time Junie B said... uh... Mommy, don't write the uh. I was just thinking."
Anyway, stay tuned. Tomorrow is the 19th stop on the Joey Fly, Private Eye blog tour. I'll be talking to Aaron Reynolds and Neil Numberman about their first graphic novel. Since I already gave Aaron a shout out for his charming picture book, Chicks and Salsa, I feel it is only fair to give Neil one too! Neil wrote and illustrated Do Not Build a Frankenstein, a funny and clever book with fabulous art.
From Publishers Weekly:
There's a new kid in town, and he's a walking cautionary tale. As his peers listen raptly, he launches into a series of flashbacks, all designed to reinforce the lesson of the title. Sure, he says, a monster of one's own is fun at first (it turns out monsters are not averse to wearing drag when playing dress-up), but pretty soon the monster's enormous strength and relentless energy make it clear that emulating Victor Frankenstein is never a good idea (“He'll chase away your friends... and your pets... and he'll break all your toys”).
Okay, before I go back to bed, here is the trailer for Joey Fly, Private Eye! This sets the bar for book trailers! I am saving up to hire whoever made it. It is all kinds of awesome!
