Hanging out with Jeff Kinney at his new bookstore!

Hey everyone! This week the Neon Wiener made its way back to Earth for a little pit stop. We needed to stock up on supplies, but the mega-cool reason we really came back was to visit a friend of mine at his new bookstore. Maybe you've heard of him -- Jeff Kinney?

Jeff Kinney and Cosmoe from Galactic Hot Dogs hang out at Jeff's new store, An Unlikely Story!
Helloooooo from Plainville, Massachusetts!
You probably know that Jeff is the author of the super-mega popular series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Plus he's the creator of Poptropica. And now he's a independent book seller, too! His new store is called An Unlikely Story and it's in Plainville, Massachusetts.

The place opens really soon, so Jeff asked me if I wanted to take a tour of it when I could make it back to Earth. And I was like, "Do hogtarians fly?!" And Jeff was like "Huh?" because of course he's never seen a hogtarian, which my tiny little Cosmoe brain forgot. So I said, "Um, YEAH I do!!!" And then a couple days later, me and Jeff were hanging out in his new store!

Chillin' like ice cream fillin' at An Unlikely Story with Jeff!
And of course, An Unlikely Story has my new book, Galactic Hot Dogs: Cosmoe's Wiener Getaway!

Check out this wicked cool letterpress table.
(Does "letterpress" mean "way original and awesome"?)
If you live anywhere near An Unlikely Story, you need to get your butt over there when it opens. You know, even if you don't live nearby, you should make a trip out there. I did, and it sure was worth it!

Okay, now for our next chapter in Galactic Hot Dogs: Book Two!

Galactic Hot Dogs: Book Two - Chapter 12 - An Army?

When we last left off, Princess Dagger was NOT happy about her fat space suit! I totally won that little argument. But things go from funny to super serious, super fast. We make a discovery that is completely, totally WAY bad news. And then another one. And another one! Read Chapter 12: An Army? to find out what's going on!

Time for me, Princess Dagger, and Humphree to decide where we're going to go next. We're all stocked up with hot dogs, so we have to get selling!

Have a rockin' weekend,
