No. I don’t see this blog as being mainly about self promotion, yet here I am self promoting. But, if I don’t who will!?
The Horn Book recently recommended Earthling! in an article on graphic novels for kids. Here’s what they had to say:
Gr. 4-6 In this sic-fi graphic novel, Bud gets on the wrong bus and ends up at Cosmos Academy, an intergalactic school whose students fear Earthlings. With the help of new friends Gort, Bud devises a plan to return home before the aliens figure out who he is. Action and humor (especially in the characters facial expressions) are successfully captured in bright cartoon panels.

I will be reading and signing copies of my newest picture book, How Martha Saved Her Family from Green Beans at the entirely appropriately named, Green Bean books in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, May 4th. Stop by around 2 to join in the fun. Drop in about 1:45 to see me sweating and worrying that I forgot what I was going to say.
Green beans are welcome as long as they behave. I’ll read, draw some beans and answer questions about green beans. But I won’t pick any green beans up. They bite.

The Czech version of Earthling! is out, or almost out. Or will soon be out. Below is the cover and a page from the book – POZEMSTAN!
My grandfather was born in Prague, so maybe this translation is part of the circle of life. But not the part where lions eat gophers.

If you’re in the area stop by the West Linn Public Library on Tuesday around 4:30 (that link is to more info on the event from the local paper) and you’ll get a book reading, I’ll attempt a few drawings, the kids will get to do some drawing activities and there’s a raffle for two of my books!
This is part of the continuing celebration of the publishing of How Martha Saved Her Parents from Green Beans, the best picture book of 2013, written by David LaRochelle. OK…So maybe it’s not THE BEST picture book of 2013. I’m just saying it’s a good book…and I’m sure kids of all ages will love the book and the event at the library.
See you there.
