Edible Book Contest

Brutus was caught "red-pawed" sniffing around the Edible Book entries yesterday. Fortunately, he was caught before he had a chance to taste test any of the submissions. He had a difficult time deciding which were the best entries, especially in the Children's Book category. He did, however, finally decide that if he wanted to remain as the library's mascot he should vote for Steve's Egg and I creation as well as Margaret's version of the Thorn Birds. At least, that's what he told us; we'll never really know since he didn't leave any paw prints on his ballot.

He stayed around to hear Patty Pinner speak, and really enjoyed her talk. He hopes that she can come back again, especially if it means more food in the library. He was disappointed, however, when he had to let all the humans eat the cobblers and nothing was left for him.
