Busy Little Bee
Here’s a quick and dirty look at some of the images I’ve seen over the last day or two. If I can post more later today, I will certainly attempt to do so. In the meantime . . . Today I will be attending the Newbery/Caldecott Banquet. Now maybe I’m just being mean here, but usually when a name is misspelled on all the pertinent signs throughout the conference that word is "Newbery". In this case, however, "Caldecott" gets its misspelled due.
Kudos to those men and women that carefully, painstakingly have to create virtual towers of books. I am reminded of the Doozers of Fraggle Rock that would create beautiful towers only to have the Fraggles destroy them wantonly as a result.
. . . to the feline.
There were other kinds of prizes to be had. Would you care for the LAMA llama?
Or is a crafty dragon more your speed?
And am I the only person disturbed by how similar the Pop Rocks and the condoms looked? See if you can spot the differences.
Lisa Yee’s peep was on hand to provide commentary.
Yesterday was rounded out with a Feiwel and Friends party. The company generously lent bloggers their space and then allowed us to stay for the after party. Many of us were amused by the inadvertent message created when these two book covers were pushed together.
And here, from the party, is myself, Jen Robinson, Jay Asher and Gregory Pincus. A happy crew indeed.
