Puppet Picture November 6, 2012Posted by ccbooks in Nerd Line.
A rare instance where two sides of my life come together: here is a picture of a puppet I made, posing with Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Boys.
Stiefvater is offering free bookplates to people who send in pictures of themselves with her book (more info on her blog.) However, she also said you could take a picture of the book with a stuffed animal or your pet and I thought “Why not a puppet?” This puppet is called Billy Bookworm and I made him in 2008, for a television show called Cuentos y Mas (think Reading Rainbow, but in Spanish) that still can be seen in reruns on a local Arlington, VA channel. He is a sock puppet, with a good sense of humor and I like to think that he would enjoy The Raven Boys, which is a fun tale of friendship and the supernatural.
