 Have you ever touched a baby lion?  They are so soft!  Have you ever petted a baby kangaroo?  They're all legs and lovable.  I got to pet them when I visited Jungle Joe last week.  I'm trying to figure out how to put Joe and his animals into a fun story.  I've made several drafts, but I don't think I have it right yet.  Let me know if you have any ideas.

Hi Miley, my kids love your show-actually I like it too.  (I guess people tell you that all the time even if you aren't Miley from TV.  I even had great fun writing a screenplay last year that I thought would be perfect for the TV Miley.  It's still with an LA agent).

Emily, I have been to Wichita and I do like pugs.  I do have three dogs-which is more than anyone needs, but I love them all.  Connor, I hope you have a great day!  Noah, the idea for books about monsters started with a joke.  Marcia and I said that if we were monster teachers all the kids would pay attention to us. 

Haley Jo and Connor, my favorite book is always the one I'm working on right now! My daughter and I just finished a book that I think turned out awesome.  If it gets published you can let me know what you think.  It's about a girl who feels invisible after she breaks her leg and she's no longer a soccer star.  Other favorites are The Worst Name in Third Grade and Slime Wars.  I have a map in the teacher's section of my website that shows all the states I have visited.  I haven't been to a few like Maine, Oregon, and Washington.  I can't wait to go there!  I even have gone to a few other countries, like Egypt, Germany, and Belgium for school visits.  I'm hoping to go to Peru next year.  I think it's exciting to see different places and meet new people.

Chloe, my favorite color is definitely blue.  Howdy to Mrs. Birt's Busy Bees, you have an awesome school!  Too bad I couldn't have gotten Soulja Boy to come with me from the hotel to your school!

Trent, thanks for the great ideas.  I hope my editor will like them.  Right now, I'm going to work on the second half of an outline for book 4 of my new series, Keyholders.  (It comes out next year.)  The evil queen is invading the real world!  Awwwwww!  Debbie

 Watch out Ohio!  Here I come.  I'm looking forward to visiting the kids in Monclovia later this week.  I hope they've been checking out my website. 

Hi Mimi, did I say I would dedicate a book to you?  Tell me more.  Marissa, I've written about 147 books. Do you have a favorite?  Tyler, where did you hear about Moon Dust Cookies?  I'm getting hungry just thinking about them. 

Right now, I'm going to visit Jungle Joe and his critters (skunks, pythons, and such) for research for a book.  His website is www.animaljunction.com.  I met him when he came to my son's birthday party.  Hopefully, the python won't get me, Debbie

    fall leavesToday is the first day of fall.  As I look out my office window, I can see a tree that has some orange leaves on it already.  Halloween will be here before we know it!  I was in a store the other day that already had Halloween candy for sale.  My favorite is Butterfingers candy.  Yum!
     A big hello to Jordyn.  It is so awesome that you like to write stories.  I hope you'll check out the writing section of my website.  Of course, it'd be fun to read your story.  You can send it to me in care of Scholastic 557 Broadway NY, NY 10012.  Another big hi to Jace, I'm so glad you liked Mermaids Don't Run for Track. My favorite part is the end, where Eddie gets a surprise from the mermaid.  mermaid
     I'm anxiously awaiting word from my editor about book three of the new Keyholder series (the first two books come out in April/May of 2009).  I thought it turned out well, so I'm curious to see what she thinks.  Now, I'm off to finish audio taping for a cartoon and to work on a picture book.  But first, lunch!  ttyl, Debbie

 Dear Friends in Texas, my heart goes out to you.  I used to live in Dallas, so all of you are in my prayers. 

Thanks Brenton for your advice.  I'll check with my editor to see if I can talk her into it!  Hi to dsouza!

I just 'met' the illustrator of the Bailey School Kids junior chapter books via email.  Jojo seems so nice!  I hope to have stuff about her up soon on the events page under About Us.

  Have a good week, Debbie

 Hi!  I survived my first tropical storm this week.  Wow, the rain was amazing.  I can't imagine a hurricane!

Seetha, I'm so glad you like my books.  Simra, Marcia and I got the idea for our first Bailey School Kids book from a really bad day.  Maybe if you ever have a bad day, you could write about it. 

Caroline, Mrs. Jeepers would think "American" superheroes were very cute.  You sound very talented.  I can't wait to see your work.

Now, I have a big question.  Since it's a new school year, should I continue Bridgett's Blog?  Last year she was in third grade.  Should she be in third forever, or should she graduate to fourth?  What do you guys think?  wwyd, Debbie
