“The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.
~ Dee Hock

Hello and Hello!

How is your Spring going? Good I hope. So many wonderful things are happening here that I'm about to explode. I'm working on two new books, the second Haunted Histories book and a new SECRET project with my friend Valarie Budayr from Jump into a Book. She is the author of The Ultimate Guide to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This new book we are writing has me happily working in constant SQUEEE mode... I promise a sneak peek next month.

Meanwhile, I'm hoping to get the word out about The Toymaker's Mysterious Math Carnival and I need your help. If you've bought the book and made the toys could you send me a few pictures of them for me to share on my blog and on Facebook? I'd love to have more photos of kids having fun playing the math games. Thank you so much!

And if you have a blog and would like to either interview me or have a guest blog post let me know. I'd love to talk to you.

Best thoughts,

"O terque quaterque beatum”
We are three or four times blessed.
