Life has been super hectic lately. So I love to transport myself to my new all-time favorite urban garden...the one in New York--the one so beautifully captured in Peter Brown's picture book, THE CURIOUS GARDEN. I love how some guerilla gardeners took over this line of overhead railway, abandoned in the 40s. Over the summer, I took my kiddos there for a moment of reprieve. Just look at the furniture built on top of abandoned railroad tracks. These benches are on casters so they can MOVE. How cool is that?

To my utter astonishment, the Curator for the distinguished Kerlan Collection of Children's Literature in the University of Minnesota contacted me. She asked for my manuscripts and notes. To be added to the collection along with the likes of Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys!
So I sent one of my early drafts of GIRL OVERBOARD, the notes I took while studying up on snowboarding, and some signed first editions and galleys.
