frans did a fuddles reading and drawing demonstration at the casa verdugo library in glendale. the kids
did a fuddles treasure hunt too, and they asked frans a bunch of questions. librarian vivian dulay organised
the event. (she’s in the picture with frans, holding my fuddles book.)
and with frans and my christmas book is maureen, the owner of once upon a time bookstore in montrose,
(the oldest children’s bookstore in the country!)
i’m sad to report that there wasn’t much food on hand, so i’ll console myself with a big tuna casserole.
last week frans visited spencerport in upstate new york. he went to four elementary schools, munn,
bernabi, taylor and canal view. frans showed pictures and videos of me, and he made drawings of me
doing silly things which made the kids laugh. frans talked about writing and reading, and the kids asked
great questions and gave frans ideas for new fuddles books.
what i want to know is what was for lunch! frans got a nice meal each day- he even had lunch with some
special kids at taylor elementary school, where they talked about ideas and writing and drawing.
i would just talk about food.
frans went to the eye doctor and he drew some people in the waiting room. i don’t like
going to the doctor. they weigh me, and then they gasp and then they ask frans what
he’s been feeding me and then they tell him that i have to lose weight.
then i get all depressed because food is my favorite thing, so how can they take that
away from me? then i need some chocolate eclairs to put me in a better mood!
halloween scares me. all these weird looking people coming by my house, making all that noise. and
there’s all this scary stuff on tv. and my family just hands out a bunch of candy to everybody that
comes to the door!
we have this big orange bowl filled with goodies, and i’m watching it slowly disappear! that’s very
painful for a kitty like me that appreciates yummy things. i just hope there’ll be something left over
look at this avid young reader, appreciating my adventures! she looks so intrigued as i work
out to prepare for the great outdoors.
i love entertaining kids almost as much as i love eating! it’s hard to beat a happy kid’s smile,
but a heaping plate of beet pickled deviled eggs will do the trick. add a chocolate peanut
butter cheesecake, and food wins, paws down!
sometimes i pretend i’m a superhero and i can fly like a bird. i go way up high, and then i can
finally catch those birdies that come into my backyard and make all that racket, trying to annoy
me because they think i can’t catch them. but when i’m birdman i can!
if i think really hard, and listen to that little voice in my head that says, yes i can! i think i could
fly. yesterday i jumped from the bench in my yard and i tried hard to fly, but i fell straight down
on my snout. i think i didn’t think hard enough. i’ll try again today, but first i need food. i can’t
think on an empty stomach. a tuna melt with relish and swiss cheese and a sweet pickle will do.
and then i’ll be ready to fly!
