At the Thomas house, whenever things seem extremely crazed, bordering on out-of-control, we like to add another element into the mix, you know, just to spice things up.

His name is Henry. It was going to be Harry, because I loved the irony of Harry/Hairy because that's what Springer Spaniels do--they leave HAIR everywhere. But the look on his little face was just so wise. He looked like a "Henry". That is the name that stuck. (Plus, my daughters refuse to give their dog a "dog" name. He must have a people name.)
In other news, I will be at the California Reading Association Conference on Saturday, signing books from 11:00 until around 2:00 at the Yellow Book Road booth. It is held this year at the Town and Country Hotel in San Diego. If you happen to be there, stop by! I'll have bookmarks and also discussion guides for THE SEVEN TALES OF TRINKET that are aligned with the Common Core Standards for FREE!
More soon, I promise!
