For the second year now, Scholastic has decked out a couple of RV's and hit the road to promote summer reading. The kickoff was held at The Vero Beach Book Center in Vero Beach, Florida. This is a truly magnificent store. I love this place. It's 2 stories of storytelling bliss. And some of the best parts are the walls. Yes, the WALLS! When they have visiting authors or illustrators come, they get them to draw on a blank spot, and there are fewer and fewer of those left. So, being a visiting illustrator, I had the incredible honor of adding Cora Mermaid to their illustrious walls.
