card-thank-youIt was a pleasure to talk at the Books in Homes event at Wiley Park. I’m a Role Model for this wonderful charity. I support it because I can talk to children about the importance of reading. Reading is so important to me because I need to spend many hours doing homework to keep myself safe in the wild when I create one of my books.

The children and teachers created this fantastic display with all my True to Life Books, stuffed animals, and great African scenes by the Banner Shop.

During the show the teacher librarian, Gillian Maugle, looked purr-fully wonderful with leopard’s ears and wiggly tail. Later we posed for a photograph with the fabulous “thank you” card from the students.

After the show the local newspaper featured the event.
