The other day I came home and there was an Amazon box. I thought, "aww crap, Mrs. Pants has been Shutterflying again." I was wrong. When we opened the box, there were 2 books. Both of them were titled "But I Don't Eat Ants." It had an Anteater on the cover. Click here to check it out on Amazon.

I laughed and looked closer. The author of the book was Dan Marvin. DAN MARVIN? From WEBBERVILLE!!?!?!?!?

"Yup." My wife said. That Dan Marvin. "The same Dan I used to work with."

Dan Marvin

First, I was really happy for him. He just lost his mother to a battle with cancer. He dedicated the book to her in a beautiful tribute.

Then, I really liked the book. I laughed. It has big words and several foods I didn't hear of when I was a kid. Of course, our baby Nugget loved it. And the box it came in.

Dan will be doing a reading for for the book and signing copies at the Barnes and Noble in Lansing tomorrow at 11am.

Here is his author bio:
