On My Way to Bed

The brand new book, written by my friend Sarah Maizes, is finally coming out in September, published by a terrific publisher, Walker Books. It's called: On My Way to Bed.

 It's the second in the series and we're hard at work to finish the third one. The next one coming out in a year is called.... On my Way to School.

You'll have to wait for that one... in the mean time please... GO to BED.

Here is the first book in case you missed it.

Authors' Night in East Hampton

I got got rub shoulders with some great authors in East Hampton tonight. I had a wonderful time talking to everyone who showed up to get a copy of my newest book, Taffy Saltwater.

I met Chris Martin and talked to him about getting to the next concert to draw and add to my every growing collection of sketchbooks. I showed him some of the drawings from the Wall tour, and Radiohead from last year.

Even my agent flew all the way out from LA to see me. John's the best. I wish my mother was still around to see all of this. She loved the publishing business and enjoyed signing books and talking to everyone that loved Maggie and the Ferocious Beast.

The wonderful Bruno's came with me. We all had a blast. Maria was hard at work on the Lili blog, Lisanne was taking pictures, and Priscilla, their mom, was chatting with Kitty Kelly.

Yes... that's me talking to Chris Martin. He was incredibly polite and a very nice guy.

And please don't forget to read The Green Monkeys over here at It's a wonderful world of Green Monkeys, Baby, Lili, Leo "Spats" Ratcatcher, and Old Blue Eye the Space Monster. Have a great day.

It's another Green Monkey with BABY.

Baby was, in the beginning, a sock puppet. And during those wonderful episodes Baby was a girl. I switched it to a boy since I had already put Lili into the strip and the dog is a she. I thought the interaction between them would be better with a boy and a girl.

Here is a link to The Cheap Show. It's still very funny and I'm thinking of writing a new Christmas episode for this coming December. That's my mother, Betty, as Baby, one character that I can't begin to figure out how to voice. She was a one of a kind.
