Today is Mild Mannered Kenton's last day at the bookstore. It is also the last storytime with the original Captain Book. Seventeen months of creating a silly and fairly massive mythology, all coming to an end today with the departure of the ORIGINAL, or what will now be known as Golden Age, Captain Book.
We've done some amazing things with Captain Book in the past year and a half. We had the kids from storytime create super villains, we had the district manager play Captain Book's long lost dad, we had Captain Book protect the release of the final Harry Potter book in front of over 500 people at our Midnight Magic Party, and we even had a six-person evil villain super team attack storytime. And now that's all changing for good.
To be honest, I'm trying not to be really upset about it.
Plans are in motion for what to do AFTER Golden Age Captain Book. His departure today at 2:00pm will kick start a four month long Captain Book EVENT of epic proportions. Things are happening. It's all very exciting.
Stay tuned ...
