4 posts
Inspired by a true event! In the summer of 2015, an adorable new species of octopus was discovered on the ocean floorthis picture book story imagines how this cute creature got his name. Deep down in the water lives an octopus small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. But he doesnt have a name! Anglerfish is named for his hook like an angler, Mimic Octopus for her ability to change shape and color, and Giant Squid is GIANT! But this little guy doesnt have the same abilities as the other creatures. What could his name be? With Marisa Polansky's sweet text and Joey Chou's dynamic illustrations, Hello, My Name Is... imagines how the cutest creature in the sea got his name. The story includes a note from a scientist about the naming process and more information about Adorabilis.

The inspiration for my handle: My oldest sister while growing up always called me Tinker / Tinker Bell. Since Tinker Bell is a pixie, I combined T for Teri/Tinker & pixie! tpixie! 🧚‍♀️ 🧚‍♂️

I went thru a phase of reading all about fin-de-siecle Paris in my twenties and the idea of the idle wanderer about town always appealed to me. I know I should be a flaneuse but my real name is Annette so I modified it a bit


tpixie https://www.indiebound.org/book/9780374156046 here‘s a book about that! 11mo

Hello littens,

The inspiration for my handle is from Neil Gaiman‘s Anansi Boys. When I signed up on litsy it took almost two weeks to come up with something not already taken. I reached my limit of patience with the constant notification of “username not available” when I took my chance with changing the gender from a book title I was reading three years ago.

tpixie That turned out great!! 11mo
AnansiGirl @tpixie it was a last ditch effort of inspiration and voila I had a litsy username 😅 (edited) 11mo
tpixie @AnansiGirl whew! And a great one. I think it was a name of a perfume too! 11mo
