Huge Thank You to Sourcebooks and Scholastic

I am a little behind in my recaps from last week but I have been experience Internet problems. Actually its not really Internet problems its modem problems but thankfully that will get fixed this week.

This post is in reference to Tuesday June 5th. It would have been my first day at BEA and that recap is below. I am now going to say I have to send out huge thank yous to Sourcebooks and Scholastic because they threw two of my favorite parties.

I was truly honored to have been asked to attend the Sourcebooks party because I love their books and working with them. They were celebrating 25 years in publishing ( Congrats Sourcebooks to another 25 more years) and they threw an awesome party. It was being held at the Hudson Terrace. It over looked the water and some of the city.

I was talking with a rep and mentioned that I didn’t get to stop by for the Kristi Yamaguchi signing and she was super sweet and quickly introduced us to Kristi who was in attendance and she graciously signed a book for me and who posed for pictures. I loved watching Kristi skate when she did.

The food was delicious, the decor was fabulous and the whole event was amazing. Thank You Sourcebooks to inviting me to be a part of this amazing event.

These are just a few of my favorite pics from the party.

Tina and I were a little bummed that we couldn’t stay longer but we had to get to the Scholastic offices for their Captain Underpants Party.

This was the first time that we have been at the Scholastic building and while we were waiting to enter we decided to have a brief look around the scholastic store and I quickly new that this was going to be bad news but thankfully I restrained myself.


This was another awesome party. The little slide burgers were delicious. I also got to indulge in The Tippy Tinkle-tini this was the best alcoholic drink I have had. I would love to work with Scholastic because they have the best view of the city on a beautiful terrace.

We got to me Dave Pilkey and get our books signed. Michael was so thrilled when I came home with this and did a happy dance. In case your wondering about the capes, well in order to get in we had to wear them.

In case you didn’t really notice the theme of the evening was centered around Captain Underpants and the place was fantastic.

Thank You to the awesome folks at Scholastic for inviting us.
