Nearly three years after publication, Shark Vs. Train is still getting lots of support from my beloved independent local seller, BookPeople. How much support? Well, here’s the latest stack of 33 copies that I just stopped by the store to sign. (You can order them online if you can’t stop by their store in downtown Austin.)

Now for my question. As I was autographing books, the “Have your next birthday party at BookPeople!” sign was right in front of me. And I couldn’t help but wonder: Might a certain picture book near and dear to my heart make a great theme for an in-store birthday party?
