In My Mailbox #7: By the light of the supermoon

In My Mailbox is a weekly posting hosted by Kristi, The Story Siren, where you post about what books you've gotten (either in the mail, the store, from the library or from a friend) for that week.
This week, I was lucky enough to attend the Virginia State Reading Association (VSRA) yearly conference.  Not only was it great to meet teachers and hear new ideas for the classroom, but I also got to hear Tom Angleberger, Judy Schachner, and Gary Paulson speak (and get their autographs!).  I also had the pleasure of talking to Laura and Meredith from Peachtree Publishers (@PeachtreePub) and received two books for review from them.

So, while I bought The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, Skippyjon Jones, and Hatchet last week, I got them signed this week.

That reads:  "To Maestra Amanda...I hope doesn't poop on me!" 

From Peachtree Publishers for review: 

 The Yellow Star: The Legend of King Christian X of Denmark   

Thank you, again, Laura and Meredith.

And because I can't help it, here is a picture I took of the "Supermoon":
