La Puente, Peepy, Pizza and Peck

Peepy and I braved the Los Angeles freeways not long ago. Our destination: The La Puente Public Library . . .

. . . where we were set to speak to Tweens and Teens . . .

I got there totally tres ahead of time, so I was able to review a manuscript for the SCBWI National Conference. Earlier in the week I had every intention of critiquing manuscripts at the beach . . .

Only, it sorta never did happen. I mean, how could it with scenery like this . . .

Back to the library. Super Librarian Monique invited us to the back room before it was time to speak. While we were waiting, this arrived . . .

Yes! Pizza! Lots of pizza! That Monique is one smart librarian. Give them pizza and they will come.

We had a WONDERFUL time talking to the kids. Here are some of them. And that's Monique holding Peepy . . .

One of my blogger pals showed up, too! For more about what went on, check out Marivee's post by clicking here.

Before we left, Peepy had something she really wanted to do. She checked out the bookshelves to see where her book would go . . .

She was thrilled to see that she'd be next to her good friend, Richard Peck . . .

Now all she has to do is write the book, get an agent, and find a publisher!
