Some paint. Some sleep.

Shorter days.

Look what showed up on this rainy afternoon. Ace and Bub’s 6th adventure, The Flying Beaver Brothers and the Crazy Critter Race, will be spreading menacingly into fine bookstores and libraries this March!

A few more swims before winter.

Passed this river-dweller hard at work while out for a rainy canoe.

The French language edition of OKAY ANDY just arrived. Waouh!

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,

MAX

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.
