The Translated Me

This was the first convention that I ‘ve been to since I got my Iphone and I travelled a trifle wild employing the camera for twirping intentions. For those not following me on chirrup what is incorrect with you? ( only kidding ) – here are those photos. By no intends a good overview of what I maked, but a couple of things withal.

So on Friday after the general session with Julie Andrews and her girl, I halted in to the jubilation for Lee Bennett Hopkins wads of playfulness to hear such distinguished poets as Jane Yolen, J Patrick Lewis, and Walter Dean Myers roast Lee. Sadly, I could n’t rest for more of them as I desired to catch a graphical novel session happing across the hallway. I came in in clip to be component of a draw-off between Flatness Holm and Jarrett J Krosoczka. The thought was for Matte to force Dejeuner Lady and Jarrett to make Babymouse, each with an audience member training them. Goodly, I certainly ran right up to train Matte so he maked Tiffin Lady functioning in my NYC schoolroom.

Don’t tell my agent or editor or the others who think I can actually write, but evidently that is from a blog post of mine. Sort of.  Actually it is, as discoverer Flatness, I mean, Matt Holm describes it, the beginning of a “translated-to-some-foreign-language-then-retranslated-to-English-stolen-blog-post” of mine. May I just say, I’m very honored to be worthy of mangling.

Now Playing: The Exquisite Corpse Adventure Episode Seven

Baby Max said, “Lollipop.”

I’m beginning to think Baby Max could give Sunny Baudelaire a linguistic lesson or two. Read Shannon Hale’s witty contribution to the saga here.
