"This book will make you itchy!"

Back from Hicklebee's where David Shannon read his new book Bugs in My Hair.  It's the best book about lice you'll ever read.

David Shannon assures the reader that getting lice is nothing to be ashamed of, it just happens.  He does acknowledge, however, that it is miserable and a pain to deal with.  The story includes many informational footnotes about how lice have crept into our everyday language.  Nitpicking anyone?

While reading his book, Mr. Shannon donned a giant louse on a headband because, even though lice are really small, when you have them, it feels like they have taken over your life!

I will be returning to Hicklebee's on Friday because another great author will be visiting.  And there will be more great authors next week.  Hicklebee's is the best!

Do you ever invite them to come read at your library?

It's complicated, but I'm working on it.
