After visiting Lakeview in the morning, I zipped over to Hughes Elementary and spent the afternoon with them. I don’t know about them, but I had a great time! It was a tight fit inside the library for both shows but we did it!
Thanks to Mrs. Wright for having me and a big thanks to all the kids at Hughes Elementary. Like I mentioned, don’t forget to visit my new Facebook page and ask me any question you like! Keep rockin’ Hughes Elementary!

I spent the morning with the wonderful students of Lakeview Elementary! After I performed my show (where I heard quite a number of excellent giraffe impersonations, I must say), I held a workshop with ten of Lakeview’s aspiring writers. We had a great time and discussed some easy writing tips to help them along. I also got the impression that these kids are destined to be some fine authors some day!
Thanks to Mrs. Smith for inviting me and a big thanks to all the students (especially the future authors) at Lakeview Elementary. Don’t forget to visit my new Facebook page and post something on my wall. Like I said, you can ask anything you like! Keep reading and keep writing, Lakeview Elementary!

I’m very excited to be appearing at a Real Bookstore this Saturday, the 16th in Fairview, Texas (just south of McKinney).

I’ll perform the same multimedia show I give at school visits and then I’ll sign copies of my new book, Night at the Museum: Nick’s Tales–Night of the Dragons.

My performance begins at 2:00 p.m.

A Real Bookstore’s address:

113 Prairie Road

Hope to see you there!

I just returned from a wonderful school visit with Pantego Christian Academy in Arlington, TX! This was my second visit to Pantego and the second time I had the privilege of meeting so many talented young authors and illustrators.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to browse this year’s book titles. I did, however get to talk to many of the young authors during my book signing! I had a great time. But, as many of you guessed, my hand was a little cramped after signing so many books.
Thanks to Mrs. Smith for inviting me and thanks to all the great young authors and illustrators at Pantego Christian Academy. And I’d like to say a big “thank-you” to everyone who bought one of my books. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them!

Today I hung out with the smart and talented kids of Centennial Elementary in Plano, TX. I had a wonderful time meeting everyone and listening to some of the best Giraffe sounds I’ve heard in awhile!
I especially enjoyed my lunch with several of Centennial’s aspiring young authors. You had some great questions and I could already tell that each and every one of you have the drive to be a great writer. Just remember what I said about the four words and I know you can do it!
Thanks to Mrs. Caskey and the Centennial Elementary PTA for inviting me and thanks to Mrs. Landon for all the help. And a big thanks to all the Kinder, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders of Centennial Elementary! You guys were great!
