  1. Jennifer were you at the Scholastic party for Captain Underpants? I love looking at the book hauls from BEA because after looking at them I always wonder if we were at the same event. Great haul. I know what you mean about tacky cheap tshirts LOL

    1. Yeah it was fantastic and truly the highlight for me. Our whole family read the C.U. books together, even my husband who doesn't read enjoys them. Scholastic really knows how to throw a party. Did you pick up any of the shirts? Sad that mine is falling apart already

  2. Oh wow oh wow oh wow! So many great books! And may I just say, I'm totally squee-ing at what I believe is Lois Lowry's autograph!!!

    So excited to read the rest of your BEA posts! :D

    1. Yes that be her autograph, she was so wonderful - well except for when she made me cry during her talk at the childrens breakfast

      Thanks J -- eventually going to type up my next day - this move is just putting me behind on my blog
