Doomed to Dance

The new Ivy and Bean is out, book 6, Doomed to Dance. If anyone is in New York this Saturday, in the vicinity of the Brooklyn Museum, between 12 and 4pm, I will be signing copies. And hands. And foreheads. I will be in the rousing company of at least thirty other Brooklyn authors and illustrators. We have all promised craft activities for the wee children, and in return they have promised us coffee. It will be spectacular!

ps I know there must be a way of showing this clip without the right hand side being lopped off, but I'm stymied as to how. If you'd like to see the unclipped clip, you can here. Don't laugh. I really did try.

When I view it on my pc it is not lopped off using Firefox. When I view videos on my Mac they usually are lopped. I fixed it on my blog by opening my post and clicking on the tab that says "edit html." Look through your youtube code for "object width = xxx height = xxx" fiddle with the dimensions until it fits within the width of your columns. Hope that makes sense.

PS - I can't wait to go and get the new book.
