It's a good day at work when you receive a package from Penguin containing an inflatable Skippyjon Jones, a bag of tortilla chips, and a packet of (what else?) guacamole mix!! Here's a picture of El Skippito Friskito, dangling high above my desk.
I keep discovering people who are not yet familiar with the books about Skippyjon Jones, everyone's favorite gato. This is hard for me to understand, as I quote from them on a several-times-daily basis. If you don't yet own these books, I recommend getting your paws on them in time for Cinco de Mayo. Then you can go crazy loco.
My day was also enhanced by the discovery that Scholastic has included the publication date on the spines of all their fall galleys! Hooray!! Muchas gracias, Scholastic.
