I've Got Books!

 Is Mega Munny shy? No? Perhaps she is engrossed in reading her very OWN COPY of my NEW BOOK?!!!!!

No... I think she is hiding from that angelic looking child star. You are thinking: "But that little girl looks so sweet..." WRONG! That is Lilah Amaret - the diabolically clever creator of the Lilah Bean minions! She wears a pink sundress and a Cheshire smile to distract us from the fact that she is holding (paper) fire on the cover of the book. No wonder Meg is afraid of her!

It is amazing what you can glean from a single photo... (besides the devious nature of my child)... the fire comes from a Klutz kit of paper doll horses (just behind Meg)... and on the table just behind - what's that?! Crayons?! And a stack of brand new AlphaTangle posters? Oh-oh, not a good situation. Yes, those are the two tables in my classroom and they are covered with STUFF. So, now you know, my child is just like her cartoon character, I have way too many projects going on at once, no time or space to teach classes (although I do have one this weekend*), and I don't get anything accomplished when that little cherub is in the studio with me.

All I wanted was a sweet publicity photo of her with the book. Honestly, is that too much to ask?

PS - I HAVE BOOKS!!! Yah! Get them here:  and if you are a CZT, you can purchase them to resell to your students.

* I have an eraser carving class on Saturday at Wingdoodle from 12-3. Call the shop at 603-456-3515 if you'd like more info and to sign up.


  1. Congratulations! I can't wait to get this book for my classroom library. I know my Gifted and Talented students will love it.

  2. Your daughter is adorable...and she looks just like I thought a Lilah Bean would look with that mischievous smile! Congratulations on the new book!

    Can't wait to get this one. You are so funny and I love how you write AND Tangle. Big Congratulations!! Well done !

  4. Mega munny... It is funny but i see a big lovely birdy who is reading you wonderful new book!
    I love the look on your daughter's face too. Possibly dreaming up new minions??? Hummm... I bet well just have to wait and see... cheers!

  5. I've posted pictures of my Lilah Beans on the dashboard. I enjoyed making these. Entering this cute contest sounds like fun.

  6. Hi Sandy, just want to say that I recently bought your book; Yoga for the brain' and it's great! Just got into the 'tangling' and it's fascinating. Thanks for inspiring me, greetz, Miranda

  7. The new book is exceptional. I purchased a copy for my adult son who has special needs and he's really enjoying himself. The illustrations are so easy to follow, but are also such fun! Very creative way to teach zentangle skills, I really REALLY recommend this book. Perfect for young kids, people with special needs, and seniors!

  8. Hello, Sandy! I am emerging from my summer disconnect with the cyber world in honor of the new school year...Teachers here report to work tomorrow morning! I can't wait to have my order come in so I can finally hold the long-awaited Zentangle for Kidz book. Wish I could have been there for the book signing. Will soon have content to post to the blog!
