This morning, we cancelled my story times at the Fort Dodge Public Library and held an awards ceremony instead. As always, it was the billionaire inventor who took home all the trophies.
But, just when I thought I would walk away empty-handed, the librarians and the mayor presented me with a special proclamation!
I now have a day named after me in Fort Dodge! Life is good.
And, you won’t believe how many superheroes asked me to go with them to the after party. You know, now that I have my very own day, I’m kind of a big deal!
Later, when I arrived at the Zearing Public Library, a very serious guard would not let me in, even though my picture was on the poster hanging on the door.
However, he did change his mind after I told him I would promise to include him in the story.
Afterwards, I realized the reason for the extra security was because of all the royalty that were in attendance!
We are now almost two-thirds done with the Reading Road Trip. In a few weeks this summer’s superhero theme will only be a memory, just like all the summer reading themes that have gone before.
