frans visited several schools in Redlands, CA yesterday. at last night’s Highland Grove Elementary school bookfair at barmes and noble, the cat in the hat showed up to celebrate dr seuss’ birthday! he clearly has good taste in books.
us cats got to stick together!
frans is working on a new fuddles book- my family gets a very annoying puppy who slobbers
and barks and never leaves me alone. these are some early sketches.
oh the things i have to put up with…
i should host the academy awards. i’m all ready in my tuxedo birthday suit, and i’m licking
my chops just thinking about all the goodies they’ll serve!
there’s nothing like stretching out on the couch. i wiggle myself in between some pillows and
a warm body, and soon i’m purring and snoring away. nothing makes me happier!
except maybe a big stack of pancakes, or a bowl of kung pao chicken.
i try to stay in shape, to keep sharp so i’m ready when unwanted critters come inside my house.
i have to be ready to pounce, my instincts need to be sharp.
but i’m glad my family keeps my house clean- those little critters frighten me…
i love music. i love singing too. i try to sing the really high notes, but i can’t always reach
them. so i sing as loud as i can, jumping up and down, stretching my neck.
my family likes that! they run around waving their arms, and then they put me in the
bathroom and close the door. they think i want privacy, but i’m really singing for them.
so i sing even louder so they can hear me all through the house!
i’m glad i make them so happy.
frans visited monte vista elementary school in la crescenta, california to read the fuddles books.
the assistance league of glendale gave the school $1,500.- and discounts on books that frans
and the other authors signed.
the kids giggled and had a great time, and i had a nice breakfast burrito at home.
