I just cannot remember the name!

Children's book, of a wintery sort (I've been trying to remember the title for six months). I read it in the last 15 years. It involved a bored princess and someone that came and shook everything up - perhaps pied piper-ish? It involved juggling I think and the character's name was really important - I remember it as something like 'Hode'.

Title of story/book about lonely Christmas tree?

Posting this for a fellow librarian, searching for the title of a book or story having to do with a lonely Christmas tree that finally gets chosen by a couple, who then put the tree on the mast of their boat. The story/book is from 30-40 years ago. It is not "The Fir Tree" by Hans Christian Andersen, or "The Legend of the Three Trees". It also has nothing to do with "The Christmas Tree Ship".

How to plan a trip for a game demo?

I'm the co-creator of a new party game and my co-creators and I are stationed out of Madison. We've been invited to demo the game by an enthusiastic game store owner a few towns away, and so we've been wondering whether it makes sense to arrange a tour of the area metropolises (Minneapolis, Milwaukee, maybe Chicago). We're ramping up to the Christmas shopping season, and the game is going to start appearing at Barnes & Nobles soon, so on the one hand it seems like if we arrange something in advance with a store and simply show up there on the scheduled weekend, there's going to be a crowd, and we can try to attract shoppers' attention. But we can also perceive such a tour where we've planned it terribly, there's no store traffic and we've squandered our time and money. So: How to plan such a trip? [more inside]
