An extra-large image of Ridley Pearson greets students as they enter the school library. Ridley’s face and books are visible on lockers, in bathrooms, at the circulation desk, and up and down every hallway. Readers are devouring the Kingdom Keepers series. Why? Because he's dropping by on April 20th to chat about Kingdom Keepers IV: Power Play.
As you may recall, I am the king of eavesdropping. Here’s what I've overhead students saying about Ridley's upcoming visit:
*I think Ridley has a cool job. He gets to do tons of Disney stuff.
*Ridley really likes to say his name.
*Ridley Pearson is my favorite author.
*Do you think he'll tell us any secrets about Disney World?
*Ridley's books make me want to visit Disney World.
*Mr. Schu brings the coolest people to our library. We are pretty lucky.
*I'm going to order all of his books.
*Did you know Ridley gets full access to Disney World when the park is closed?
Kingdom Keepers IV: Power Play will be released on April 5, 2011.
