Autographing Books at Bob Hope Burbank Airport

This past Sunday, October 3, 2010 I had the opportunity to visit The Bob Hope Burbank Airport’s CNBC News store, one of The Paradies Shops airport stores where I signed books for customers between flights.

Who would have thought Mexican Jumping Beans and my book Lucas and His Loco Beans would be such a hit!  People, young and old were enthralled to hear about what makes a jumping bean jump.

Among those shopping for a special gift was a fifth grade elementary school teacher from Northern California who was interested in purchasing a copy of Lucas and His Loco Beans for a daughter-in-law teaching a dual language first grade class.  When she found that the book offered a section on the biology of the jumping beans, she bought one for herself as well.

One of my customers was wanting something special for Christmas and was thrilled to learn that if she put the jumping beans in her refrigerator crisper, they would hibernate and would be fresh when she removed them, wrapped them, and tucked them under the tree.  From personal experience, small children go wild when they hear the jumping beans clicking under the tree!

Lucas and His Loco Beans can be found at The Paradies Shops in the following airports:

Boise, ID; Burbank, CA; Dallas, TX;  Houston, TX;  Long Beach, CA; Midland, TX;  Palm Springs, CA; Phoenix, AZ;  Portland, OR; Reno, NV;  Sacramento, CA;  San Francisco, CA;  Santa Ana, CA;  Sacramento, CA;  Spokane, WA;  Tucson, AZ

If you find yourself passing through any of these airports, don’t miss out on purchasing a book and beans for someone special in your life.

The retail price of the book is $15.95 and jumping beans $3.95.

ISBN:  9780965117418
