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….

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!
