I met Tomie dePaola!! He was great! He read from his newest book and then signed books and even let us take pictures (not all authors will do that). I'm such a weird-o. Now, if only I could have met Emily Dickinson and Louisa May Alcott!
In this video clip, Tomie is explaining one of the rules of speaking like the people in New Hampshire. If you listen closely, you can hear Andrew giggling.
