And signed books! It was great fun to see how many people came in matching outfits! Aren't they awesome?:
Unfortunately, Rain Dragon was not as impressed. I used her crayons for everyone to use during the draw-along and I think she was a bit upset. She only calmed down a little after she got some of them back and I signed a book especially for her.
