A SPECIAL EVENT FEATURING POP

I’m so excited to be part of this special event for families at Harmony Village at CareOne in Paramus, New Jersey, January 17 at 6:30 pm, featuring my book POP.

WE ARE READERS; WE ARE WRITERS

One of my all-time favorite school t-shirts – Pinewood Intermediate in Schenectady, NY. Loved the school; love the message.

RESTART MAKES THE BEST OF 2017!

So thrilled to see RESTART on Brightly‘s list of The Best Children’s Books of 2017, According to Kids. The “According to Kids” part is important – this is an honor chosen by the readers themselves, which is why it means so much. Woo-hoo!

GO UNICORNS!

I picked up this piece of quality merch at a school visit orchestrated by the awesome Scholastic Book Fairs when Texas Library Association was in San Antonio – New Braunfels ISD in New Braunfels, Texas. Go Unicorns!

FINALLY – NYC!

Can you believe it’s December and I haven’t yet featured a single t-shirt from the largest school district in North America – and right next door, too – New York City Public Schools? That streak ends today! World Journalism Preparatory School in Queens, NY. Thanks, 6th grade, for your awesome units on SCHOOLED and MASTERMINDS […]

POST-THANKSGIVING SCHOOL TEE

It being holiday time, let’s honor the hometown – Great Neck North Middle School, Great Neck, NY. Go Blazers!

GREETINGS FROM THE SBF TOUR!

Greetings from Clark Middle School in St. John, Indiana, last stop on my whirlwind tour for Scholastic Book Fairs. The official “swag” at Clark was this awesome SCHOOLED t-shirt – an excellent addition to my school shirt collection. Thanks – and thanks for a great visit. Peace!

RESTART AWARD NEWS!

Forgot to share the excellent news that RESTART has been nominated for the Silver Birch Award, part of the Festival of Trees program, voted on by 200,000+ young readers in Ontario. So psyched to be back on this excellent list, which has featured SWINDLE, ZOOBREAK, THE HYPNOTISTS, and MASTERMINDS over the years!

PENNSYLVANIA

The latest – from the awesome Lawrence County Reading Festival,  sponsored by Lawrence County Schools in Pennsylvania.

DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS!

Okay, even I’m starting to be blown away by how many school t-shirts I’ve picked up in my travels (although it explains a lot about the state of my closet). This week: Canyon Ridge Elementary School in San Antonio, Texas. Go Coyotes!
