      Hi guys.  I hope you were able to wish your mother Debbie and dragon at Longwood Gardensa "Happy Mother's Day" yesterday.  I had a great day with a picnic and a visit to Longwood Gardens.  A friend nominated me for Mother of the Year and I won!  Click here for the clip. 
   Okay, I'm sure you've guessed by now that it was a joke, but this is not joke:  I want to thank all the great kids in and around Harleysville, PA.  who came to my booksigning on Sat.  It was awesome to meet you.  The winning school was Lower Salford Elementary.  If it's okay with your principal, I'll see you next Debbie Dadey videoconferenceNovember!  If I haven't visited your school and you're not close to PA., you might like to tell your teacher or librarian about something new I'm doing called video conferencing.   I just did one with William O. Schaefer school and it was fun.  I'd rather be there in person, but technology is cool too.  It's free if you have a webcam.  If your school interested they can contact me for next year.
     Stephanie, I love the name Camp Chris.  Don't Aliens Don't Wear Bracesforget to check out my writing page and scroll down, but I think you should write what you like to read.  Do you like adventure or funny stories?  Raynier, I'm glad you liked Aliens Don't Wear Braces.
     Kyla, my real name is Debra Sue Gibson Dadey, but everyone calls me by my nickname Debbie.  Camilla, there's one fact about me.  You can find out more on  the book report section of the Swamp Page, but I will tell you that I feel very lucky to be able to make my living writing books.  I also go to church every week to thank God for all my blessings (and I The Worst Name in Third Gradepray daily). 
     Bridgette and Gismeillys, your ideas were great!  Bridgette, do you know I wrote a book called The Worst Name in Third Grade where the girl's first name is Bridgett?  Her last name is the worst name! 
     Carol, it was great fun to visit your school.  A big hello to Jamie and Stephanie.  I hope if you live in Keyholders logoeastern PA. or New Jersey, I'll get to meet you this week.  I'll be at Books and Greetings In Northvale, NJ on Tuesday afternoon and at the Borders in the Shoppes at Valley Square in Warrington, PA. on Saturday at 2:00 signing my brand new Keyholder series.  See you soon, Debbie

 hot sun    Look out California, here I come!  I'm visiting a school there this week.  I wonder if it's as hot there as it is here.  omg, I thought we were going to burn up at soccer games yesterday and I was sitting in the Aliens Don't Wear Bracesshade!  
     Ashley, I'm glad you liked Aliens Don't Wear Braces, my 7th book.  I actually wore braces for four years!  Carlee, my fourth book was Leprechauns Don't Play Basketball and my 30th book was Hercules Doesn't Pull Teeth. Madison, I have lots of favorite books, like my new Keyholder series This Side of Magicthat somes out on Friday.  The first one is This Side of Magic and I'm pretty excited about it.  Bryanna, I hope you'll like it. 
     Trinity, thanks for your good idea.  Did you know I wrote Mermaids Don't Run Track?  Brittany, please write to me at Scholastic 557 Broadway NY, NY 10012 and I'd be happy to send you an Genies Don't Ride Bicyclesautograph.  Sheamus, my most popular book so far has been Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots.  Gam, I'l glad you liked Genies Don't Ride Bicycles.  It's my mom's favorite too.  I don't always write with a partner.  For instance, The Worst Name in Third Grade I wrote by myself.  In my spare time, I like to garden, play tennis, and read.  Stay cool, Debbie

     flowersHappy Earth Week!  Hurrah for our beautiful planet.  Let's keep it the best we can.  I was surprised when I read these facts in Dear Abby the other day:  It takes this long for these things to decompose-
Paper-2 to 5 months   Milk cartons-5 years
Tin cans-100 years     Aluminum cans-200 to 500 years
Styrofoam-never!
Now, I really know how important recycling can be.  I certainly don't want our earth covered in trash.  I hope you recyle.  I do!                                                  Vampires don't Wear Polka Dots
     Hi Madison, Lauren, Toni Marie, Elianna, and Kristianna.  I'm so glad you liked Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots.  It is of course, one of my favorites too.  The Swamp Monster in Third Grade is another.
     Zariah, I have a BIG birthday this year on May 18th.  Yesenai, I'm so glad you like my books. Shannon, what's Swamp Monster in Third Gradeyour question?  Jack, your school is cool!  Connor D., my grandmother, Lillie Bailey, was an inspiration to me.  I thought it was neat that she kept a diary.  Paramveer, I'm glad you like Snow Monsters Do Drink Hot Chocolate.

     Morgan, I live in Pennsylvania, but I was born in Kentucky.  I think writing is fun because anything can happen-you can make a magic world like in my new Keyholders series.  I got started Pirates Don't Wear Pink Sunglassesjust by writing one story about my dad (it was never published).  I'm glad you liked PIrates Don't Wear Pink Sunglasses.  I went to a school one time and every kid wore a pair a pink sunglasses.  It was funny.  Jamie, I can't wait to see the surprise you have for me in California.  brb, Debbie
