Guess Who Got a Guest Spot on The Van Show?

Whoa – I was interviewed by this lovable blue monster!


I met this book-loving cutie on THE VAN SHOW, taped at the 2023 Texas Library Association Conference. Of course, I have childhood memories of watching celebrities speaking with puppets on kids’ shows, but that kind of meeting was NOT something I ever expected to happen to me – and it was such a treat. Van and I talked about my VERY FIRST book (written in first grade), and the SCIENCE MAKES IT WORK picture book series, with a focus on the SECRETS OF THE SNOW GLOBE book. We had a glittering snow globe on set, too. THE VAN SHOW is a program of the Austin Public Library and the public can watch it here:


Check out other authors, illustrators and creators who have appeared on the show, too, including Varian Johnson, Candace Fleming, Jerry Craft, Guadalupe Garcia McCall, Tim Tingle, Kate DiCamillo and Margarita Engle to name just a few.

Thank you to everyone behind The Van Show – I had such fun being a part of this special program.
