The LONG TOUR! Photo Roundup!

October 23rd, 2012


At the MIBA Movable Feast. Renaissance Depot Hotel in Minneapolis, which doubles as a pretty sweet train museum.

Thank you to EVERYONE who made the last three weeks simply amazing for me: the booksellers, reps, drivers, publicists, and event coordinators; friends, family, and those who count as both; authors, illustrators, and speakers; librarians, teachers, principals, and secretaries; my tirelessly awesome husband Dave, and most importantly, the fans. Everywhere. You are so humbling and amazing and I am lucky to have you in my life.
