22 YEARS OLD . . .

. . . AND COUNTING! Twenty-two years ago MERRY CHRISTMAS, OLD ARMADILLO made its debut on the publishing stage to a starred review in School Library Journal. The best Christmas present ever would be to see it reach the ripe old age of twenty-five. You might help. “How?” you ask, and I’m so happy you did. Between now and December 10, you might order a copy from your local independent bookseller or favorite online bookshop. (Be sure you are NOT ordering the book from a third-party (“used”) or it won’t trigger a count at the publisher, and the sooner you order the better.) Here’s one place you might order from:  http://www.booksamillion.com/p/Merry-Christmas-Old-Armadillo/Larry-Dane-Brimner/9781563973543?id=7116256365142.  (Those at Amazon and B&N all seem to be third-party books.) I can’t tell you how much it would mean to me to get this book about love and friendship back into the hands of young readers.


With heartfelt thanks,
