I am very excited for the launch of my new fiction/non-fiction early reading hybrid, UNLIMITED SQUIRRELS in I LOST MY TOOTH!

The book features, stories, facts, quizzes, a-corny jokes, and so, so many squirrels! Here are some of the Squirrels!




I hope you enjoy the book when it releases on October 2, 2018!

Big news & just announced:

The Pigeon will be returning with a brand new adventure in 2019, and this time The Pigeon is getting schooled!  Here's the cover:



It's been a few years since The Pigeon has had a new book to himself and he's not been happy about it!  Hope you'll enjoy this when it comes out next summer!

PW has the inside story about this book and another upcoming effort, BECAUSE.

Bundle!





ELEPHANT & PIGGIE: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION has just been released.  It features a hard back version of every E+P adventure, plus 2 Elephant & Piggie Bookends Metal (featuring a hidden Pigeon).  

This is as complete as it can get!

It can also be used as a massive paperweight.

Foreign

I'm always thrilled by seeing my work in a foreign edition!  Sometimes I can muddle through them; mostly I can't.

Here are some foreign editions of my books that have come thru the studio.  












To date, my work has been translated and published in over 25 countries from Azerbaijan to Vietnam.  A quick search in your favorite language should be able to tell if and where to get them!


EXHIBIT!

This interactive, immersive experience filled with games, drawing, animation and much Mo' is designed to spark creativity in kids and their grown up pals.

UNLIMITED SQUIRRELS BOOK LAUNCH

October 13, 10 am - 3pm

The ERIC CARLE MUSEUM OF PICTURE BOOK ART
Amherst, MA

We'll be celebrating the launch of Unlimited Squirrels first adventure I LOST MY TOOTH with readings, signed books, games, events and Mo!

I will be doing two readings in the auditorium at 11am and Noon.  Reservations are required for the readings, so contact the Museum as these readings typically do sell out (Tkts for members are available starting 9/18, tkts for non-members 9/21).

There will be loads of signed books as well (both new and old), but I won't be doing a signing for this event.  There will still be lots and lots of fun surprises!

 Details are HERE!

THANK YOU!




Thanks to YOU, the Elephant & Piggie Biggie spent a few weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List in July and August.  Thank you!

THAT'S IT!

Remember there's always more to see on the various blogs, the NEW Pigeon Presents site, and the THANK-O-RAMA site! 


Remember, you can get signed books and all new Mo things at the Eric Carle Museum Bookshop.  I just visited and signed a slew of 'em!
