Notes, PW loves the Pigeon Activity Book, and I'll see you in Easthampton.

First off, best wishes to everyone who was caught in Hurricane Sandy's path, especially pals and neighbors in Brooklyn.  Here in Northampton, we managed to escape any troubles (although there were some power outages in the hill towns).  We are incredibly lucky.  If you, too, have survived these past few days without many troubles why not give a hand to those who haven't?

On to more pleasant news:

Mr. Warburton has been posting images of his recent visit to Knuffle Manor and beyond, including images of doodles on walls and tables.

Speaking of Mr. Warburton, we were both excited to get a starred review in PW for DON'T LET THE PIGEON FINISH THIS ACTIVITY BOOK!  They say: "The humor snowballs, with kids adding their own jokes to the mix, and the laughs will, too."  Thanks, PW!

Thanks to you, Elephant and Piggie's LET'S GO FOR DRIVE! spent its 3rd week on the New York Times Bestseller list at #8!  Thanks, you.

I'll be speaking tonight and answering questions at the Williston School in Easthampton, MA about writing and my work.  The event is open to the public, but is for folks interested in writing, rather than the little fans.

Here's hoping everyone had a fun and safe Halloween. Here are a few costumes from the twitter world:
