Haha, well if for some reason it's mine, then I guess there'll be an extra copy of this book for one of you nicer (or naughtier) AEET friends!

Sorry, fellas. I'm pretty sure that Anonymous is my secret admirer who has yet to declare herself (or perhaps an ex who who wishes to make up).

This one sure looks like a winner!

My son has been obsessed with it since around that age as well, I can't even begin to count how many times we've watched it and listened to the soundtrack CD.

Thanks Patrick, Happy Holidays to you and Leslie too! I was really happy to see Rick use a few of your Mad Monster illustrations in this book as well!
