The Lenny and Lucy Trifecta

"A few weeks ago Erin and I were visited by an old friend. Our friend is a big bear of a man with a fluffy white beard. He is the kind of person, both in looks and in demeanor, who must spend much of his December every year convincing children that he is not, in fact, Santa Claus. This friend has been in both of our lives since we were teenagers, and is one of the only people who can say they knew us each individually before we knew each other. He is Mike Foye, our high school art teacher." -Philip C. Stead | Click here for the full post. 

"Go outside and look around. Think about the things you like and why you like them. Read books, comics, anything, and remember you are never too old for picture books." -Erin Stead | Click here to read the full interview. 

I have been sharing my great love and admiration for Lenny and Lucy since February 22, 2015. 

Two hundred twenty-five days later, Lenny and Lucy is finally available in bookshops and libraries. Hooray!  I bought a copy at Barbara's Bookstore in O'Hare Airport...

...and a copy at Barnes and Noble.

I wish I could mail a copy of Lenny and Lucy to everyone who reads this blog post, but I do not have the financial resources to make this dream a reality. I can afford to give away three copies. :)
