The book is here! El Deafo is here!
When I returned from Georgia, there were a couple of boxes at our house.
Could they contain what I’ve been so excited about for so long?
Miss Bunn admires the page where she makes her first appearance. You might remember her from the Sock Monkey books.
And Sock Monkey? Is he in the book, too? Sadly, no. Sock Monkey came into my life much, much later. Here he is, NOT enjoying the book, and trying to prevent you from seeing that Miss Bunn is in it, while he is not.
Thank you for reading, and for all your support, and for your kind notes and reviews and posts and twitter exclamations and just for plain old picking up the book and giving it a try. There are so many good people in this world and I hope that in some small way I’ve added a bit of my own good to it. That’s the goal with all my books, and this one might be the closest to achieving that. We will see!
Check in soon for more El Deafo Extras and odd bits and bobs from the process of making the book. Again, thanks for reading!
