Taj Mahal, mounted on silver paper. And, there were all kinds of pictures of animals–from zebras and killer whales, to bobcats and koalas–inspired by my many animal books. One classroom reproduced the cover of my book A Penguin's World with pieces of torn paper. Every child contributed!
My day at Vintage was organized by librarian Karla Forbes, who did a superb job getting the kids ready for my visit. Librarians like Karla are the key to helping children make the connection between the books they are reading and authors like me. Perhaps, someday, some of them will grow up to be authors or illustrators too!
