Avery likes Gabby (and it’s mutual!)

Three-year-old Avery reading Gabby.

Avery is finding out that C-A-T … is a cat! Love it!

Three-year-old Avery has great taste in literature, if I do say so myself.

Look at the blur of the page … her obvious joy in reading … all of it, so lovely.

Way to go, Avery!

Thank you, CD, for sending us this picture.

Gabby as a “woolly doodle”

Woolly Doodle Gabby Cathy DisbrowThis is a gorgeous new felted pin that I commissioned from Woolly Doodle’s Cathy Disbrow.

She is an incredible felting artist, and she’s created a version of Gabby that is so, so perfect.

I’m going to enjoy wearing this Gabby during school visits–or heck, anywhere I want to feel kidliterally stylish!

If you’re an author and want to commission one of her lovely pins for your own book character — or, let’s say you’re a pet owner (she does pets as well!) — visit Cathy’s Woolly Doodles website here.

A new Gabby, perhaps?

Gabby and friends 2 sculpture

Well, I didn’t think there’d be a fourth Gabby book, but you know, when an idea pops up, it pops up! Not much you can do about it, except write it down.

So that’s what I’m doing.

And frankly, that’s all it is right now–an idea, and I haven’t even talked to the publisher, yet so it may go nowhere. But it’s really compelling and that’s always a good sign. I’ll write it down and see what happens after that.

Not going get into too much detail about the plot yet, except that it MIGHT involve some animals.

Er… lots of animals.

Might.

Stay tuned!
