The Bippolo Seed And Other Lost Stories circulated before I had a chance to read it. I placed it on hold, but I am in position five of the queue. Last night I found the storybook app in the iTunes App Store. I had an entire conversation with myself about whether or not I should download it (most of it occurred inside my head). I wanted to experience the print copy before the digital one. After going back and forth for what felt forever, I finally gave in and downloaded it. You made the right decision, Mr. Schu!
