This past weekend I had a book signing at my local Barnes & Noble (thank you Kelly for all you do for me!). I decided to do a little something different. Come on, I’ll show you.

I pulled up to the store with my family. As always, I was thrilled to see posters about my books in the window. Talk about dreams come true. You spend so much time reading and writing and wishing, seeing your name in a book store window and on the cover of a book never grows old.

To gear up for story time, I did a little practice run. This time last year, I didn’t need glasses to read. Those days are over! Funny how the angle of the picture makes the book look HUGE.

I asked everyone who came by my table to help build a dandelion. Kids had fun sticking the dandelion’s seedpods everywhere they could. I have to admit, they did a pretty good job.

After story time, we all sat down and started drawing and coloring. I have some pretty nice artwork to share. Thank you to the kids who took the time to show us what incredible artists they are!

Great job little Dhruu!

I might have to ask Kriya to do the artwork for my next book!
