Release Party.

The incredulous cry echoes through the darkened trees: I have it in my hands! I have the answer in my hands!

That pretty much sums up the feeling in VanDusen Gardens moments after each person grabs The Book and exits through the back of the tent to make way for more eager readers, vouchers and hands outstretched.

The operation was really slick. Apparently there were about seven thousand people crammed into a roped off field, milling and admiring costumes. There was a band to entertain as we lined up, pressed against barricades, waiting, waiting for midnight. It could have been a mess, but I doff my cap to Kidsbooks. They did a really good job of organizing.

    It looked very, very cool. Like being part of something.

    You know, it really felt like that. I feel like I took part in history.
