Simon says, "Follow me on Instagram" :)

Here are a few of the excellent books my writing assistant, Simon, has reviewed and recommended on Instagram:

written by Sara Pennypacker, illustrated by Jon Klassen
Balzer + Bray
pub date: February 2, 2016

by Rachel Hawkins
G. P. Putnam's Sons
pub date: May 7, 2019

by Pam Mu├▒oz Ryan
Scholastic Press
pub date: March 3, 2020

An incredible coincidence: so far, I have agreed 100% with every recommendation! Hehehe!

I would like to remind everyone that Simon came with his name. I'm not a narcissist, naming pets after myself. In fact, his name made it seem like we were meant to have him in our family! At least, that's what I kept telling myself when it took wa-a-ay too long to housebreak him. I guess his mind was on other things. Books? Squirrels? She-poodles?

This is a photo of Simon three days before Halloween. He was telling dog ghost stories at the time.

If you'd like to follow him, his Instagram handle is simon_the_whippet.

Are you on Instagram? Feel free to post your handle in the comments!

Love that coincidence! :)
I don't do Instagram yet but when I do I know exactly who to follow!

Hi, Jemi! When you start Instagram, Simon will follow you back! He just said so. ;)
