Critter's Big Announcement, revealed!

Critter feels that it is now time to reveal his purpose in life. He doesn't want to return to NC to sit at my desk. He's experienced too much. Met so many great people and done so many fabulous things. His little painted eyes have been opened to the perils of this world and he wants to give a little something back. He has decided that after his 18th visit, he will return to NC as planned, but instead of being my desk mascot, he'd rather be auctioned off and the entire winning bid will go to the children at St. Jude.

And that's not all. Critter now has a fanpage on facebook! Please join his fanpage and cheer Critter along.

A little background info re: Critter:

Critter fancies himself to be the mascot of Children's Lit Bloggers. He has visited several Children's authors, illustrators and writers such as: (also listed on my sidebar)

Texas with author PJ Hoover
NC with debut novelist Beth Revis
South Korea with writer Christian Farley
New England with writer Nandini Bajpai
Chicago with writer Kelly Pollark
California with illustrator MG Higgins
Montana with PB author, Rena Jones

Critter has 8 more visits to go. When he returns to me, he will be auctioned off. The full amount of the highest bid will be donated to St. Jude.

I estimate that Critter will return in the Fall of 2010. Until then, we need to get as many people aware of Critter and his cause for St. Jude. The only way to do that is to get as many people to follow Critter's adventures as possible.

Here's how you can help:

1) Follow Critter's Adventures and blog, tweet or FB about Critter.

2) Offer your blog to host a Critter visit.

3) Suggest this fan page to your friends.
