Slime Invasion!

How was I ever supposed to know that entering through the Burlington Public Library’s emergency exit would set off the slime trap? What an unpleasant start to my morning.

I guess next time I’ll seek out professional advice before opening unfamiliar doors.

After a quick shower, I was ready to present story time to a crowd full of eager adventurers.

But, what caught my eye the most in that audience full of excited kids? The cute little rascals who brought their pet armadillo [...]

This morning at the Keokuk Public Library the kids arrived by the busload!

They love to listen to good stories there!

42 cities into the Reading Road Trip and my Hypno-Shark is still holding up!

So is the Boomerang Barracuda.

My story time this afternoon was at the Burlington Public Library. Debbie Wagenbach, world famous author of The Grouchies, even showed up for the story.

So did Lord Sucker, Evil King of the Brain [...]
