I took a short break from the SCREEN FREE TOUR to visit Philadelphia's fabulous PLEASE TOUCH MUSEUM!
It's a pretty awesome place. You MUST come here if you're in the area (or not). Incredible architecture and plenty of things for me- um, the kids- to climb on.
My book BOY + BOT won their book award! Here I am with the other winners, Maria Van Lieshout, Ame Dyckman (author of Boy + Bot and odd hair color enthusiast) and G. Brian Karas.
Here I am with Ame in front of a cool display of our book and some vintage toys. Sadly, it was locked up tight, otherwise I would've snagged a few of those robots!
Here we are presenting our book to the kids.
Hey, my stomach is grumbling! I'm hungry. Well, since I'm in Philly...
Why not grab a cheesesteak? I see Pat's Steaks up ahead.
Dee-lish! I got mine with Whiz and onions. Yummy.
In case you didn't know, there's a good-natured rivalry between Pat's and another place for cheesesteaks, Geeno's. In fact it's just a short walk, so as I lick my fingers, I make my way there.
There it is! Mighty Geeno's like a beacon in the distance beckoning me.
Oh, man! This one's good, too! I'm sorry, but I can't decide. I'll have to do a taste test again, but not today!
I run into a fan.
And check out the museum shop. Great stuff!
Time to hit the road again. Adios!
