I got a cool invitation in the mail the other day from the kind folks at Kirkus. Opening up the envelope reminded me of the first pages from my first book, Sock Monkey Goes to Hollywood: A Star is Bathed. Just like the folks in Tinseltown remake movies every now and then, I’m thinking now might be the perfect time to remake this book. Here’s where I’m headed (and please ignore the sloppy Photoshop stuff I’ve got going on here):
I’m really, really excited about this trip. In real life, it’s not so much the getting clean that scares me. It’s the flying in an airplane stuff that makes me quake in my boots. BUT even if I don’t win, it’ll be worth it. I might get to meet the amazing New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast, who is a finalist for her own graphic novel/memoir, Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant? And even better, I will be visiting the students at the Texas School for the Deaf. My book is really for them, after all.
Thanks for reading! One of these days I’ll upload some more El Deafo Extras for ya!
