I didn't realize until I got there that I was going to be part of a puppet show.
Puppet shows are like foreign movies: seldom good, often horrid.
These guys were good. Silly and energizing, not gooey and moralizing. Good voices, good action, good musical sound effects. Relief.
And I wasn't really part of the show, it turns out. They introduced me and I read my book. I was like Maya Angelou on Sesame Street.
So there you go. I signed some books, talked with some kids, and fell in love with at least four toddlers.
