I had to go to Dusseldorf to buy some clothes at the Tommy Hilfiger Denim store there so that I won't look so terribly out of place at their Fall/Winter 08/09 line opening in January. Daniel and I decided to make a day trip out of it, taking the opportunity to look in a few other stores as well - it is a great city for shopping. We had a delicious lunch at an Italian place on the Koenigsallee and went to the K20 art museum which has an awesome collection of Paul Klee's work (in addition to other 20th century artists).
The Christmas market was also already in full swing. Daniel got his favorite - roasted chestnuts and I got mine - cinnamon stars.
My debut YA novel LEVEL 2 (Simon & Schuster BFYR) is out now. My debut picture book CHICK-O-SAURUS REX (w/ Daniel Jennewein) comes out with S&S on July 23, 2013. I've been blogging about books since April 2008.
