Easy, Pete--calm down. Okay. Now, where was I?
Oh yeah, Wild Rumpus. Last Monday I was at Wild Rumpus talkingabout my books and meeting readers. For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, Wild Rumpus is a fantastical bookstore in the Linden Hills area of Minneapolis with a huge selection of children's books, a knowledgeable and dedicated staff of former children (adults), and a free-ranging menagerie of chickens, cats, and assorted other beasts.* A wild rumpus indeed. You should check it out next time you're in Minneapolis, unless you are allergic to fur and feathers.
Here's as pic of me scrawling something on a copy of Godless.
*Including rats, at least one iguana, and probably a unicorn (though he's tough to spot).
