Today is Whale Day here at the ol’ blog. I’ve been pretty inconsistent with the postings lately, but today is a special occasion as Erin’s new book, if you want to see a whale, releases today. This is the second collaboration between Erin and our good friend Julie Fogliano. So hooray for Erin, hooray for Julie, and hooray for whales, wondrous whales!
NCAA Basketball Edition – Hail to the Victors Valient
People are often surprised to learn that Erin is a huge college basketball fan. Last Sunday U of M earned a trip to the Final Four for the first time in twenty years. It was an exciting enough occasion to warrant joining the flash mob (of the friendly variety) that convened at 11pm at Crisler Arena to greet the basketball team as they arrived home on the bus. I caught Coach Beilein as he was disembarking into a sea of fans.
