How Crusty spent her prize.....
My 11 year old niece, Crusty, won a $25 gift certificate to Barnes and Noble for doing something excellent at school (I can't remember what she did exactly....I'm old). Her mother took her to the local B&N to "spend" it and the first book she picked out was DWT Vol. 2. I had already sent them Vol. 1 as a gift some years ago (and Lou spelled my sister's name correctly--imagine that). My sister called to let me know that I had created a monster. Hey, I do what I can!
She is going to let me "borrow" her book next November, since Vol. 2 isn't signed by the author. I think I can get that taken care of for her.
PS. Her name isn't REALLY Crusty.
