A short morning post...

A fun morning. Breakfast with the very wonderful Jill Thompson, and then in the big hall for real writers at the Chicago Bookfair, where I read WOLVES IN THE WALLS, and the Aladdin poem I did for Ellen Datlow and TerriWindling and "Crazy Hair", and I answered a few questions, and then most of the 400 people at the reading trooped over to the hall and I signed their books. Maddy is having much too much fun, although right this moment while I'm checking e-mail she's watching Even Stevens on the hotel Disney Channel...

Which reminds me...

Hi Neil,
this isn't a question, just a quick note to let you know that you are quoted in the July issue of Better Homes and Gardens.
There is a section about fun things to do this summer and the article mentions a book club for kids. You are in there saying that you still read to Maddy and how you use different voices for the different characters. It was a fun article and very surprising to see my favorite author mentioned.
