Readathon Fun

Asked to be a Guest Author for Red Hill Elementary School’s Readathon (Santa Ana, California), I responded with an enthusiastic Yes! And thanks to technology, from 3,000 miles away, I was able to share screen shots as I read my picture book THE TROUBLE WITH CAULIFLOWER and then read the first chapter of my middle grade novel ME AND THE WEIRDOS.

I had fun voicing the characters, and afterwards the students—who apparently enjoyed listening!—got to ask questions and make comments. Two of my favorites were:

“What was your main purpose for writing this Book?”
“You’re a very good author.”

Introducing the story of Mortimer the koala bear, who’s convinced that eating cauliflower brings him bad luck the next day

My turn to listen to my charming listeners’ comments
