Not only did the Western Washington Children's alternative Literature conference folks put me up in a lovely hotel, they welcomed me with the most thoughtful basket ever.

Because I love to garden, there were gloves and seeds (for sunflowers and bok choy); blank note cards for my passion for writing scene cards; yummy food treats for me and cookies for Winston; all set off with a note card with a bird's nest on the front (a nod to my love for birds). I was astounded. Astonished. Touched.
Thank you Sylvia Tag and crew!
