Auctions for Children's Book lovers

Well, I almost won a snowflake in the Robert's Snow auction last weekend. I am trying again.

Author Mo Willems sent out an email about the THE PIGEON’S AUCTION FOR CHILDREN AFFECTED BY KATRINA

An on-line auction begins NOV. 15TH at 11:45 am and runs through NOV. 25TH 2005!

You can get to the auction through Willems site or directly to EBay at

The need is clear and ongoing, and, as a native New Orleanian, it
strikes quite close to home. So, I’ve asked a group of friends who
happen to be renowned children’s Authors, Illustrators, and Television
Creators to join me in auctioning off original art, signed books, and
signed memorabilia to benefit the Foundations for Recovery, a Louisiana
based group that has organized funds for children and education
affected by the Hurricane.

There is some really fun items on the list. Here are just a few:

Signed Elmo-Shout by Elmo's Muppeteer Kevin Clash
Signed 1st edition of ARTEMIS FOWL by Eoin Coifer
Original KITTEN drawing by Kevin Henkes
Brian Selznick signed WALT WHITMAN + ornament
