Yes it was wet. It was soggy. But it was GREAT. Rain, heat and sleet could not keep the kids from the books or the books from the kids. We met hundreds of young readers and writers from all over the country and shared our new Jimmy Cook and our silly picture books. We even read a brand new book and got some excellent suggestions for the title... I still can't decide between Evil Snail Robots and Wizard Dizard. Any more suggestions SEND THEM OVER!
