The return of the dread Salty Carrot

Alphabet Trail and Tales in Pittsburgh’s Frick Park was a blast yesterday—the Salty Carrot was dragged out of drydock and assembled at the big Blue Slide pavilion.  We had glorious weather, too.  We read Henry & the Crazed Chicken Pirates (now in paperback!), then painted a few crazed chicken pirates.  Thanks to Le and Nancy for inviting me back.  Thanks to the fans and friends who came out to say hello.  Bravo to the volunteers who created all that nautical splendor out of plywood and paint.

Does anyone have a photo of the hot air balloon?  Mine came out all blurry.
