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!

I also hope my next book gets great ratings. Some fantastic Flying Beaver Brothers art and flattering words from Kienan in Florida!

An old sketch from a Flying Beaver Brothers sequence that didn’t make the cut (you’re looking at a page on the left and a page on the right). Skateboarding penguin naturally.

Hey gang! If you find yourself in the desert southwest this weekend then stop on by the Tucson Festival of Books. I’ll be reading at the Story Blanket on Sunday at 2:30. Then I’ll be chatting it up with Drew Aquilina and Tom Angleberger at 4:00 in the Education Building. Other than that I’ll be busy pretending to know where I’m walking. Find out more here!
