Sam Riddleburger checks in at last with this exciting news:
Last night I was reading Pinkwater’s new book, The Cat-Whiskered Girl, which he has generously posted online for free reading!
At the end of Chapter 2, I spotted my own name! Riddleburger.
It actually said: “Apologies to Riddleburger for stealing his jitterbug picture.”
The chapter had mentioned Jitterbugs, which is a known Pinkwater food last seen in the Snarkout Boys and the Baconburg Horror(?).
Some time ago, I had made one — a rather poor one — and posted a picture on this blog during Baconburg Horror Week. Pinkwater, or more likely his valiant sidekick Webmaster Ed, had used it to illustrate the chapter online and I got a little footnote! A footnote in Pinkwater history!!!
How awesome is that?
