Bats at the Beach!

Hi, Chank-
You helped me out back in late April, after I’d bought Uncle Stinky and was trying to send it to a designer who was doing the computer work on a graphic for my Jeep Cherokee. She couldn’t open the copy I sent with my basic design, and you sent her a clean copy at no additional charge. We “wrapped” the Jeep, and our “BATSmobile” has become one of the most impactful parts of this summer’s book tour.

I just thought you’d like to see how the BATSmobile turned out. We’ve been staggered by the response to it and to the book, which is in its fourth week on the New York Times Children’s book bestseller list (at #3, after three weeks at #2!), and came in at #4 for the month of July on the Publisher’s Weekly children’s book best-seller list!

Many thanks again for the great fonts!
