☕ CUPPA OF CHOICE: Tea, tea, glorious tea. Tea for you and tea for me! My favorite decaf is Teatulia’s Lemongrass tea. That’s often what I drink in the afternoons. In the mornings, I switch it up with various kinds. But no Earl Grey. Ewwww. I occasionally splurge on a soy chai latte, but never drink coffee because it gives me a headache.
Okay, this has got to be the cutest book promo idea we’ve seen in a long time. Children’s/YA author Lisa Schroeder is posting “fun with cupcakes” videos on her website every Tuesday and Thursday leading up to the September 20th release of her new middle grade novel, Sprinkles and Secrets, the much awaited sequel to the utterly delicious It’s Raining Cupcakes(which we celebrated here).
Where she got the adorable cupcake costume we’ll never know, but she sure looks cute in it. Check out her antics in the first two videos — and don’t forget to keep checking her website every week for more!
Hey, wild thing: grab a vine so we can swing through the jungle! We’ve got the perfect excuse to go totally bananas today, because Lisa Schroeder’s thirdbook this year, Little Chimp’s Big Day (Sterling, 2010), is officially out!
Weather Forecast for alphabet soup and vicinity: Mostly sunny with periods of heavy cupcake rain. Sugar highs astronomical with cheers blowing in from all directions. Frosting and sprinkles overnight north and west of town.
Available as a 5″x7″ print here.
Grab your umbrellas, everyone — it’s cupcake weather!
I am sooooooo excited that It’s Raining Cupcakes by Lisa Schroeder (S&S/Aladdin, 2010) is officially out today! Truly, this middle grade novel has my name written all over it, and I’m here to shout its praises from the highest rooftops.
Will you just look at that cover? *lick lick* Scrumptious and then some. If it’s got you anticipating a deliciously fun, uplifting story that will leave you comforted, inspired, and totally satisfied, you will not be disappointed. Just wait till you begin reading — each chapter is named after a different cupcake flavor: Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes, Banana Cream Pie Cupcakes, Coconut Mango Cupcakes, and my personal favorite, Hawaiian Sky Cupcakes! ☺
