Yesterday, a school book club from New York created a Jeopardy! board, which they used to ask me questions. (Olivia Bean would have been proud!)
Aren't these kids precious? (Half a dozen book club members forgot to show up. But they're all getting signed bookmarks!)
And this sweet crew from Massachusetts, who had excellent questions for me . . .
My first Google Hangout was with 50 middle schoolers at a public library in Indiana. What fun!

And finally . . . the biggest, zaniest Skype visit I ever did was with Deb Tyo's amazing students from Ohio.
|Here's a small portion of the students.|
Some of the students created a video invitation for me to Skype with their class during World Read Aloud Day.
But nature had other ideas. School was cancelled that day because of snow. I suggested everyone fly down to Florida, but some people were too busy playing in the snow . . .

We made up for the missed Skype visit today. These kids were so enthusiastic and well-prepared! When they asked about my new book and I held up my finished manuscript for DEATH BY TOILET PAPER, the toilet paper went flying . . .
It was so much fun visiting teachers, librarians and superstar students in four states this week without ever changing out of my slippers.
