LA Times Book Festival: Kristin Chenoweth, Eric Carle, and Yo Gabba Gabba!

We decided to attend the LA Book Festival this past weekend, and enjoyed the peoplewatching, spinning the wheel at the LA Opera/Geffen Playhouse booth, gawking at the amazing booksellers booths, and taking lots of photos.

As we passed the LA Times Stage, we heard the deliciously squeaky voice of Kristin Chenoweth of Pushing Daisies, and enjoyed her singing a snippet from Somewhere over the Rainbow. She is too adorable for words!

Eric Carle, writer and illustrator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and other great books from childhood presented a drawing demonstration at the Kids Stage. It was standing-room (and tree!) only.

Yeardley Smith, the voice of Lisa from the Simpsons, wrote her first kid's book, I, Lorelei, and read a selection from her book.

And we had a great dance party with DJ Lance Rock and Brobee from Yo Gabba Gabba!- all the little ones were singing along and rushing the stage. More pics at Modern Frill.

And this caught my eye...

A day of adventure!
