Just wondering . . . and a Changing Hands Event

So I was looking through my daughter’s latest Scholastic flyer and I saw this book by Stuart Gibbs. Is it just me, or did the rest of you suddenly wonder whether George and Martha had wandered into a bad neighborhood?

I bet it was George. He did, after all, have that gold tooth.

On a completely unrelated note, I’m going to be at this year’s YAllapalooza on January 29th, at 4pm with a bunch of cool authors. Here’s more info:

Changing Hands Bookstore presents YAllapalooza 2011, a literary extravaganza for tween and teen readers featuring free pizza, games, prizes and chance to mix and mingle with your favorite YA authors!

    You are one of the funniest people who ever lived. I just thought you might want to know.

    I would love to go to the YAllapalooza! Unfortunately, I live in Idaho.

    I wish I didn’t live so darn far away. Maybe I can pack myself into one of Karen’s suitcases. Hmmm . . .

    I was at YAllapalooza last year and loved it! I’ll be there again this year. Thanks for the reminder.
