Thanks so much!
Button was quite excited when he heard that a book had been written about him. He immediately began to polish his needle in case the paparazzi was nearby and wanted to snap a picture.
“How does it feel to be famous, Acorn?” asked Button.
“I don’t know. I feel the same,” Acorn answered.
“Well, you won’t feel the same for long,” said Button. “You’ll be asked to speak at conferences. You’ll be asked for your autograph. Others will want their pictures taken with you.”
Acorn was stunned. “What’s a conference?” he asked.
“A place where everyone gathers to listen to you speak,” said Button. He paused dramatically and then continued, “Your life will change!”
Acorn thought about that. He liked his life. He liked being home. He liked alone time when he could dream. And he definitely didn’t like speaking in public.
“But I don’t want it to change,” Acorn said, sniffling.
Button could see Acorn was upset and softened.
“Maybe I could go to the conferences and you could stay home,” he suggested.
Acorn was relieved. “Thank you, Button! No one is a better friend than you.”
“Quite right,” said Button modestly. “Come along. We must autograph the books I’ll be taking.”
Acorn smiled and signed his name on every book.
