Jeremy Tankard. Saint Paul's independent children's bookstore, The Red Balloon, hosted the event. My good friend Julie Reimer did fantastic tiger face painting, attendees could make their own tiger tails (or neckties) and there was plenty of tiger cake to eat. It was a roaring success!
That's me pictured with my nephew Matt, my niece Sarah, and my four great nieces: Katelyn, Britta, Lauren, and Hannah, to whom the book is dedicated. You can check out more pictures of the event at my Facebook page. Roar!
