Lulu’s Mysterious Mission

— Please gather round for a quick announcement! Closer. Closer. That’s it, tuck in there. Lots more room in the front here… don’t be shy. Yes, I’m talking to you, ma’am. What’s your name? Henrietta? Really? That’s an unusual name. You don’t see a lot of “Henriettas” anymore. No… it’s great, it’s a good name. I was hoping your name might be Lulu, though. It would have been an excellent segue to my announcement. Well, because the book is called Lulu’s Mysterious Mission. Oh, yeah… I’ve got a portfolio entry with concept art and everything. Dammit — if your name was Lulu that would have been perfect. Well… I mean… that WAS the announcement… no point in using the megaphone now. Okay, everyone back to work or whatever.
