Zoe: “Mama. In school yesterday we watched a movie about Philippe Petit.
Me: “Who is Philippe Petit?”
Zoe: “He walked on a tightrope between two big buildings. Did you know him when you lived in New York?”
Me: “Sadly, no.”
Lucy: “Did you know The Snowy Day won a gold medal for best drawing? Really. It did. It’s on the book. A gold medal. It’s called the Cawldercat.”
Me: “Yes. I love that book. It’s been one of my favorites since I was a little kid.”
Zoe: “Philippe Petit won a Cawldercat Medal too.”

Zoe and Lucy have emptied their piggy banks and are very busy counting the coins.
Lucy: “Wow! I’ve got a billion coins!!!”
Zoe: “Awwwwww. I’ve only got 68.”
