Bobbie and I have made our move to the mountains of North Carolina where we will spend the summer months. We’ll be enjoying the climate in NC, the good company of friends and family who live nearby, and the view from our home of the expanse of undulating mountains. At times, it feels like the view from an airplane from where we sit in our house. Or a bird’s perspective.

I am also looking forward to our return to Massachusetts for a visit later in the summer and my annual book signing engagement on August 14, 2010 at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. I’ll also be giving a lecture at the Museum the night before the book signing. I hope to see you!
