It Was Grandma Beetle’s Birthday—to which Señor Calavera came bringing the present she loved the most

Grandparents, crazy teens, teachers, librarians, musicians, authors, artist, children and even a dancing skeleton came to celebrate Grandma Beetle’s Party last Friday in San Francisco.

You didn’t get to come?

It is ok; here are a few things to make you feel like you were there too.

First a picture of Just in Case: A Trickster tale And Spanish Alphabet Book, which released we celebrated at the party, and which we read with the help of musician Miguel Martinez and his group

Here is Sr.Calavera’s newest video, which we showed at the party as a response to many readers who keep asking me, “But really, who is Señor Calavera?”

Well, at last, the answer!

I know some of you didn’t come because you had dates with a certain famous vampire. I understand. I would have liked going too. The cake was delicious--how is that?

But even if you didn’t come, you should know that I am still looking for the mysterious sender of these flowers below, which I received at the party in behalf of Grandma Beetle. Was it YOU?

Last but not least, Señor Calavera has his super-chido new website. Go check it out!
