Look! It's a brand new Hazardous Tales poster! Click on the image to get a larger, easier to read view.
Librarians who go to next month's ALA convention will be able to get this poster at the Amulet booth. I'm very excited about this. I've had two books get posters before, my first book, THE DEVIL YOU KNOW, and RAPUNZEL'S REVENGE. Both of those books have had good luck, so hopefully this poster will be a good luck charm for DONNER DINNER PARTY.
I hadn't ever studied the Pony Express before--wow! There are a lot of great stories there. Check out a book on the Pony Express next time you visit your library, you won't be dissappointed!

Long time readers of the blog (very long time readers) may remember the famous LEGO keelboat. I posted it a few years back. It has long since been disassembled. Although I've been feeling the need to build a new and improved version. There have been a lot of great torso paint jobs released in the past few years (Pirates of the Caribbean, the recent Series 10 Collectable Minifigure Revolutionary War soldier, to name a few.)
BTW, Captain Clark's "jentile brease" is not a typo on my part. Captain Clark was a creative speller in his journals. "Jentile brease" is an exact quote.
