SCHOOL TEES DON’T STOP FOR SUMMER

The quest for 52 school t-shirts in 2017 doesn’t stop just because it’s summer. Rocky Run ES in Fredericksburg, VA. Go Bulldogs!

GO HAWKS!

Had to dig pretty deep in the closet for this latest school t-shirt – Oak Hill Elementary in Overland Park, Kansas. A long-ago yet very memorable visit! Go Hawks!

LATEST UK BRUNO & BOOTS NEWS

Great news for fans in the UK – the second BRUNO & BOOTS movie, THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING AT MACDONALD HALL,  will be premiering on Nickelodeon UK on July 21st. Plenty of time to lay in a supply of popcorn, couch pillows, and maybe a beanbag chair or two.

WELCOME TO THE “SUMMER OF RE-RELEASES!”

This summer, Disney-Hyperion is repackaging my teen novels BORN TO ROCK, SON OF THE MOB, THE JUVIE THREE, and JAKE, REINVENTED!

THE OFFICIAL SUPERGIFTED COVER REVEAL

Well, I told you there was going to be a robot, but I never expected this robot. It’s a thing of beauty! Congratulations to the design team at Balzer and Bray. They really knocked this one out of the park!

My latest school tee is an oldie-but-goodie: Allen County Schools, Allen County, Kansas, hosts of a fantastic Young Authors event way back! I heard my first tornado siren there.

MY VERY OWN LIBRARY

This week’s t-shirt comes from Newark’s Rafael Hernandez School, a gift in honor of my 4th (and possibly league-leading???) MVOL visit. Go […]
