Thank you, Monica!

And Rab... that's really kind of you to say. I truly do hope I can inspire with this news--- and my posting here doesn't appear too self-indulgent.  I wondered if I should post this news... considering it's a fourth book, and not a first.

But the support I get here tells me it doesn't matter. We're all here for each other, for good news and the bad.   :grouphug2:

More congratulations, Salina. And I, for one, am happy to see celebrations for a fourth book in a pb series. It lets other pb writers see there is still a strong interest in pbs and even in multiple books on the same character. And as a librarian who reads to every single Kinder, 1st and 2nd grade class at my school (that's nine classes by the way) every week, I like knowing there's another book with the same characters if my kids (or I) really enjoy the book.

In fact, I just bought Click, Clack, Boo at our book fair because the kids and I loved the characters in Click, Clack Moo, Cows That Type. I can't wait to share the book with them this next week!

You guys are all just so awesome!  :love5: Thank you for celebrating with me and for all the super-kind words!!

Diana, thanks for the secret stash... but I don't get how to use it.  :shrug:  No matter! I'll do it Larissa style:  :penguin  (that's my coded version. Just use your imagination!)

Dianna, I'm glad you like the title, PENGUIN and PUMPKIN! My editor came up with it when we were brainstorming future title ideas, and I was determined to come up with a story so I could use it! So in this case, the title came first!

Bobi:   :clapping :clapping :clapping :clapping :clapping :clapping :clapping :clapping ...for reading to all those kids every week! Does sound like a super fun job, though! 

Ev and Jayca---sheesh---you will make me cry!  :hug 

I'll stop thanking everyone now... but seriously, thank you.


And  :crossedfingers :goodluck :crossedfingers :goodluck :crossedfingers :goodluck :crossedfingers :goodluck :crossedfingers to all of your WIPS, queries and subs! (I'm smiling at all the friends I have on this board who need these very things! hee hee!)
