BEA Part Two

Hi again!

I’m back at BEA for Part Two of my visit here. There are SO MANY fun people to talk to. And seriously, everyone wants to grab me and hold me and pose for a picture. I guess I can’t help it since I’m a STAR. And it’s kind of fun. The kind of fun that Zebra would say was holding up the conference and causing trouble. Let’s get busy and meet some of my friends. Ready?

Bruce Degen! If his middle name starts with C, his initials would be BCD, just like a piece of the alphabet. Wow. Hey, did you know Bruce has written and illustrated tons of books? You know my favorite? JAMBERRY. It’s so fun. But there’s a bear in it instead of a Moose. I don’t get that. Maybe I need to talk to Bruce about a redo….


Pretty artwork! This is by Fiona Robinson!


Fiona Robinson! She wrote a book called THE USEFUL MOOSE. I think I love Fiona.


Hello, Chad Beckerman!


The guy on the right is Bob. The guy on the left is….Peter? Paul? Yes. Paul. Paul O. Zelinsky. I think we’ve met. Yes. Now I remember. For sure we’ve met. And you know what? Paul is a really nice guy. AND he draws really good pictures. And he has all these prizes for them!


Melanie Hope Greenberg has THREE names. Three. I want three names! They would be…Moose, Moose, and Moose!


Peter! Is that you, Peter? I can’t tell because of the sunglasses. Hey..why don’t I have sunglasses? I’m a star, after all!


Aw…Sophie Blackall loves me!


Look! Artwork by Sophie Blackall! Hmm…I know this character. I do. Something with an I. Isabelle? Imogene? Wait…Ivy!!


Sean Qualls! It’s not often you see someone with a last name that starts with Q!


Well, hello, John!


Rosemary Wells!! I LOVE her books! My favorites? YOKO’S PAPER CRANES, and anything with Max and Ruby!!


It’s been a fantastic day, but it’s time to leave the Javits Center and call it a night.


Ah…heading home now, with a nice view of sunset on the Hudson River. BEA was SUPER FUN! I can’t wait til next year. Hm. Maybe I can ask Zebra to come with me next time. Or not…I kind of like having everyone’s attention all to myself. See you next year at BEA!

BEA Part One

Hey everyone! Today I’m going on a HUGE ADVENTURE. I am going to Book Expo America. It’s in New York. It’s huge. And it features BOOKS! Let’s go!


Leaving Brooklyn with my friends Deborah and Paul! Ah…the Brooklyn Bridge, Freedom Tower, and Empire State Building!


Driving to Manhattan! What? Your car doesn’t look like this?


Wow! The pre-BEA party at BOOKS OF WONDER. Have you been here? The best book store ever…and they have lots of signed copies of Z IS FOR MOOSE if you’d like one!


I’m here! Along with a LOT of others! I’m going to check out the art auction, and see if I find any friends in here!


Edward Hemmingway! Hello! Hey, Hemmingway…hmmm. Wait. Do I know a Moose with the same last name as you?


This fellow is Sergio Ruzzier. He’s really funny!


My pal, Bob Barner! I think he likes to read. Hey–I like to read, too!


Well, hello there, E. Lockhart!


Hello, Brian Floca! Brian is an artist. I am trying to find out if he would like to draw a MOOSE in his next book.


And this is some of Brian’s artwork. Wow!


Martha Rago!


Christopher Fransceshelli. Can you say his name ten times fast?


My friend Kate!


Hi Suzzanah!


Kissing? Hey! Anyway- this is Ted and Betsy Lewin!

I have lots more pictures to share, so stay tuned! Right now I need to go read some really great books by these people! Maybe some of them will have a MOOSE in them! And I think I heard something about a “snack bar” around here. Better go check it out. See you next time!
