We got to see Jon Scieszka

Jon Scieszka came to our school yesterday for an author talk and book signing! Mom had a really old book of his from 1992 called The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales.

He told us about how he sent his first book, The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, to lots of publishers and no one wanted it. Then the illustrator made some pictures and then the publishers told him not to ever send him anything again!

But he did find a publisher and later, Stinky Cheese Man won an award! He has a new funny book called Truckery Rhymes where he changes old nursery rhymes to have trucks in them instead.

The lines were very long and all the people made us nervous about when we do our balloon signing in a couple months, but Mom said it would be fine. Since it will be Christmas, we're going to make CANDY CANE BALLOONS. We think.

We're off to read!
