As touched on here before, my brand new book (a middle-grade novel--ages 7-9) with fabulous author and pal, Rachel Vail, JUSTIN CASE: SCHOOL DROOL AND OTHER DAILY DISASTERS, is out today! Officially dropped.
Lots of insanely good stuff has been swirling around about it already. Just to hit a few of the finer points...
STARRED review in Kirkus!
JUNIOR LIBRARY GUILD Premier Selection for Spring 2010!
Stellar reviews in both School Library Journal and Publisher's Weekly!
Glowing recommendation (or "blurb" as they say in the biz) from prolific and beloved novelist, Avi!
It's all very exciting, and I'm thrilled to have gotten the chance to work with Rachel again (our first collab was picture book, RIGHTY AND LEFTY, back in 2007).
Anyhow... thought I'd kick off the celebration by sharing a few favorite pieces from the book. I'll actually break this into a few blog posts, so as not to blow all the fun in one shebang. Here's the first installment. Please click on images to get better, closer, looks.
GO, JUSTIN! More to come...
