San Diego Comic-Con! (there will be pink tulle!)

Team Babymouse has touched down in San Diego for the world-famous Comic-Con!

We love Comic-con so much! It's super kid-friendly and a great place to meet favorite creators! My own children are currently "growing up" at SDCC. Some favorite folks they look forward to seeing every year are Larry Marder (Beanworld), James Burks (Bird & Squirrel), Dan Santat (Sidekicks), Raina Telgemeier (Drama), Dave Roman (Astronaut Academy), Viz Media (Hello Kitty), and the whole kids group at Boom! Studios (we are big Peanuts fans!). 

Tomorrow I will be moderating a panel called "Raising a Reader!" It's being sponsored by CBLDF. Here are the deets! Hope to see you there!
