http://cheshirecheesecat.com/. The book is targeted for grades 5-8, but to be honest, animal lovers, history buffs, and folks of all ages will enjoy this book! Another part of the enjoyment is the wonderful artwork by Barry Moser, an acclaimed illustrator who has won the National book award for his work in "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland".

Many of you have expressed interest in being a volunteer at TBF. Now is your chance! Each year, we rely on over 200 volunteers…teens (grade 6-12) and adults…to help the day go smoothly from early set-up through clean-up…and everything in between. Attached you will find more information about what is involved and the types of things you might be asked to do should you volunteer, whether as a Festival Guide or an Author Presentation Assistant. The form you will ultimately need to complete in order to volunteer is also online…and our TBF Volunteer Committee would prefer that you submit this online. The form that is attached is just for your reference so you can take a look before you commit to volunteering.
Part of the commitment includes being able to attend a mandatory volunteer training on Tuesday, May 15th from 6:30pm until 8:00pm on campus at Nazareth College. This training is critical. If you cannot make it to the training, you will not be able to volunteer. Once you commit to volunteering we do rely on you all! So please be sure to ask any questions if you have any…you can email us at email@example.com
The website to complete the volunteer form can be found here: http://tinyurl.com/tbf2012
You will hear from our volunteer committee as soon as all of the assignments have been made. Please be sure to include your contact information...including email! Deadline to submit a volunteer form is APRIL 2nd. If you submit a form on time, you WILL get a volunteer slot…so please save the dates (5/15 for training and 5/19 for TBF) even if you don’t hear from us right away.
As a volunteer you will get an official TBF Volunteer T-Shirt, a light breakfast (if you volunteer in the AM) and pizza for lunch.
If you have any questions at all about volunteering, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so much!
Just 128 days to go!
TBF is also looking for Teen Artists to enter the 2012 logo competition for program materials and tee shirts. Information on how to enter is here:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/arts/bigread/top100.shtml. I think the first classic I am going to read is "The Count of Monte Cristo" by Alexandre Dumas. I have already paired up with two fellow bloggers for encouragement (one works with me), so wish us luck, or better yet, take the 100 book challenge yourself!
