Some of you may have read on Facebook yesterday that my head had exploded in a fit of squeee. This is true.
After I posted here yesterday, I went on Twitter to promote my blog post. While scrolling through my feed, I noticed that Jon Klassen and Lemony Snicket had kicked off their book tour for The Dark, a book I knew was coming. This made me excited and hopeful that they'd make an appearance somewhere in the Bay Area so I could stalk them together, as I've already stalked them separately as evidenced here and on my author shrine wall in the library.
So here is a third author - my all time favorite author, no less - that I have stalked separately:
And, of course, I had to have this amazing work so that is when I discovered that the ebook is an enhanced ebook with Neil Gaiman's audio reading built into it so you have Jon Klassen's beautiful illustrations, Lemony Snicket's amazing words, and Neil Gaiman's velvety voice all at once. This was my bedtime story last night and it made me so happy.
Also, it turns out Mr. Klassen and Mr. Snicket will bringing their book tour out this way on April 29 at the Burlingame Public Library. I'm going, who's with me?
