JUSTIN CASE 2 out now!

I'm like a broken record here on the ol' blog... I'm behind in the posting of important stuff. Problem is, I update my Facebook profile more than I seem to update my blog nowadays. No excuse. If, however, you aren't my friend on Facebook, and you're reading this, please friend me up right here! So what I'm behind on now, is celebrating my latest book release (book 5 of the 2012 Matthew Cordell Children's Book Explosion!!).


Book 5 is JUSTIN CASE: SHELLS, SMELLS, AND THE HORRIBLE FLIP-FLOPS OF DOOM. Now if that most excellent title doesn't grab you, I am here to tell you that Justin Case 2 (for those not in the know, it's a sequel to JUSTIN CASE: SCHOOL, DROOL, AND OTHER DAILY DISASTERS) is every bit as hilarious, if not more so to tell truth, as its predecessor. The coolest Rachel Vail has topped herself, what I'm saying.

Help me in celebrating by checking out the cover and a sampling of drawings I did (there's a kabillion of them peppered throughout the text) and go out there and find a copy to read! Hooray, Justin!

Fanstastic Matthew! Love everything I've seen so far! And what kind of vitamins do you take?

Thanks much, Jennifer! Oh, nothing special... I buy my "vitamins" on the street corner like everyone else. (I kid!!)

I'm reading this with my 5-grade son right now! We just loved the illustration when Justin is worried about sleeping over at his friend Noah's house because Noah "sleeps with a bat." So great! And since my son said at one point that he's "the dorkiest kid in class" because he wears glasses (he's had them since he was 3 months old!), the book is like a salve for him -- and me! Mother's heart can only hold so much :) Love your work, and many, many thanks for the joy you share...

Thanks so much, Lisa, for these kind words! I'm so thrilled to hear your little guy is enjoying and relating to good ol' Justin.
