The Flying Beaver Brothers: Birds Vs. Bunnies, by Maxwell Eaton III (2012).

A tumblr of ladders in children’s books. Instead of working this morning, I wasted 15 minutes counting 30 illustrated ladders in my 12 books. 

Flying Beaver Brothers Super Fan, Maggie, turns nine with her friend Anton and a pretty awesome birthday cake! Forget ink. I’m going to switch to frosting. Though I may have trouble scanning …
Thanks to Maggie’s mom for sending these along!

A couple of Flying Beaver Brothers Super Fans line up with their line-up! Thanks to their dad for sending this picture. Always makes my week!

Ka-kah!

Hey gang!

The Flying Beaver Brothers and the Hot Air Baboons is out today!

It’s Ace and Bub’s fifth adventure and boy was it fun to write and illustrate. Ski jumps, giant bathroom appliances, lecturing baboons named Ringo, and the return of a former Beaver Island antagonist suffering from low blood sugar. The usual kid lit fodder.

Anyway, definitely take a look at the preview pages. I hope you enjoy reading it. Let me know what you think!

Your bud,

A nice OKAY ANDY mention over at the Chicago Tribune!

How could I forget?

In the meantime, THE FLYING BEAVER BROTHERS AND THE HOT-AIR BABOONS hits shelves in less than a month! Be sure to check out the preview pages.

I’ll keep you posted!

Hey gang!

I just shipped out final artwork for THE FLYING BEAVER BROTHERS AND THE CRAZY CRITTER RACE (book 6) and boy is it looking sharp in yellow. Can’t wait for you to read it this coming March.

This one is especially exciting, because it’s my tenth book with Knopf Books for Young Readers!

Well, that’s all for now. Back to work!

Lots of beaver action on the river this morning.

A quick break from deadlines.

A walk in the woods tonight.

Wolves talking last night while we paddled past the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge and Rehabilitation Center in Wilmington, NY.

Big move!

Hey gang!

It’s been a little while since I last posted, but I’ve got a good excuse! My wife and I just moved from Tucson, Arizona to Wilmington, NY in the Adirondack Mountains. I miss the desert every day, but it’s good to be back where I grew up.

In book news, we’ve got the release of THE FLYING BEAVER BROTHERS AND THE HOT AIR BABOONS (book 5) coming on August 5th. And the second Andy and Preston book, ANDY ALSO, on Septemeber 9th. In the meantime, I’m busy finishing up the sixth Flying Beaver Brothers book, which should be out next Spring.

Well, we’re all caught up! Back to work!

Your bud,

MAX

Future author, Matthew, shows me a thing or two about drawing!

A display of banned and challenged books at Calgary’s Signal Hill Library for Freedom to Read Week last month. The skinny one in the middle looks especially menacing.
