Pumpkin Cupcakes

I will try to post pics of my kiddos in their costumes - but if I don’t do it on time then I want to at least wish everyone out there a very Happy Halloween!

Title: Flora and the Flamingo
Author: Moly Idle
Illustrator: Molly Idle
Publisher: Chronicle Books

I have a severe love for wordless picture books - or as I like to call them… picture books. To tell a story without the crutch of words is a fascinating and exciting proposition. If you really think about it - it’s the exact opposite of what I do.  I like the idea of telling stories where the listener must imagine what the characters and actions look like in their own heads.  Picture books similarly forces the reader to tell the story just through what they see.  Flora and the Flamingo does it brilliantly.  A very sweet story about a little girl and a bird who are the perfect dancing partners.  Check it out today!

I will be performing at the Cranberry Harvest Fesitval on both Saturday AND Sunday!  I hope everyone comes - it is an amazingly grand time!  Saturday is supposed to be a bit wet outside but, to me, that only makes events that much better.  Shorter lines = more time for fun!  But, like I said, I will be there on both Sat. and Sun. with shows at 11:00am, 12:00pm and 3:00pm.  I will be in the children’s area - so come on by and hear some tales!  It will be so much fun!
