I'm heading off to Italy for the Bologna Book Fair, but before I go, a quick thank you to Greg, who wrote on behalf of Miss Sprague's seventh grade class in Centerville, Ohio. The class just finished reading The Lightning Thief and did some mini-projects based on the book. You can check out Greg and his group doing an ad for the Lotus Casino here. I'll be sending a note via snail mail to the class, along with some signed bookplates and a few other small goodies. Thanks to Miss Sprague for being, in her student's own words, a genius teacher, and to the seventh graders for doing a great job. You are the demigods of the week!
