Here’s the long-awaited Youtube video (slideshow, really) of photos taken of people posing with the Carnival Cut-Out Jerry Bee at the Bee-Wigged Launch Party. It was such a hit, I’m taking it to today’s booksigning and probably to many more events in the future….

Bee-Wigged reviewed in 100 Scope Notes

24 Nov

Bee-Wigged got a great review from 100 Scope Notes. it starts like this:

Quick, what’s the most ridiculous thing you’ve heard lately? How about a bee, wearing a toupee, who is mistaken for a child?

Wow! What a time!

We’re not sure how many people were there, but all 153 cupcakes were eaten!

The good folks at Ram’s Head Books handled the sales for us and said about 100 copies of Bee-Wigged were sold along with many, many Sock Monkey books. So that’s a great start for Jerry Bee!

And so were his first three public readings, by three All-Star Librarians … Brian Compton, Miss Allison and Cindy Minnick (below).

More photos to come!

The Make-your-own-bee crafts were a huge hit. I’ll be posting a lot of those photos as well as a blank BEE for you to try, too, if you missed the party…

In the meantime, THANKS TO EVERYBODY WHO MADE IT SO BEE-RIFFIC!
