Wow. I’m at the Children’s Author Breakfast. The MC is Julie Andrews. Yes, THAT Julie Andrews! What a treat! I’ll never forget seeing her in The Sound of Music at the Fifth Avenue Theater in Seattle when I was ten years old. She just introduced Peter Yarrow, a surprise guest who came out with his guitar and sang If You Take My Hand and Puff the Magic Dragon. What a fabulous way to start the day! He was followed by Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries, who had us laughing and now Tomi dePaolo started his presentation with a couple of acapela lines of The Hills Are Alive With the Sound of Music which brought down the house and ended with So Long, Farewell! Next up: Amy Krause Rosenthal author of one of my very favorite new children’s books, Duck! Rabbit and Little Oink. Wish you all could be here with me.

  1. The Children’s Author Breakfast was a BEA highlight for me, as well. I was star-struck by Julie Andrews, who I “knew” well before she became an author 🙂
