‘Tis the season… to wear my warm, woolly sweater and to scratch my backside on the Christmas tree! Oh, the joys! Not to mention the increase number of naps per day.

On Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen! It’s Ava Baby. Ho. Ho. HO. I love the holidays (almost as much as BELLY RUBS) and I was thrilled to wear my spiffy holiday outfit tonight. The other PAL guests had holiday attire on as well. It was a very merry occasion.

Hi. I am a happy fellow. I love to play, to have treats, and to read books (in that order!).

Deborah ClearmanAuthor Deborah Clearman will be visiting the Chevy Chase branch on Monday, December 13, at 7 p.m.

Clearman will be reading from her latest book, Todos Santos.  This exciting new novel is about a woman's journey to Guatemala with her teenage son, and was inspired by Clearman's own travels.

The book has garnered praise from Publishers Weekly and Joyce Maynard, and we are very excited about this event.

Clearman will also be signing copies of Todos Santos, and patrons will be able to purchase a copy at the event.

Hello, fine friends. C’est moi, the ever-refined, fashion-forward, five-year old (mas o menos) PAL  grandee. Demurely, I slipped into the library this evening, gracing the room with my plum-purple knit sweater. It was a lovely contrast to my pewter gray coat.
