Ghouls, Gourds & Books
Halloween comes early this Sunday for kids and adults alike at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Time to show off those costumes, carouse with colossal puppets, create recycled junk instruments, carve pumpkins and, of course, chat with celebrated children's book authors and illustrators! I will be there signing books and would love to see familiar friendly - and scary - faces. This is a picture of my son, Isaiah as a Taxi Driver and his friend, Levi the lion from a few years ago. It was around when My Taxi Ride came out, so I made his stroller into a taxi cab. Fortunately, he was young enough, and not yet highly opinionated, to impose my artistic vision onto!
