Scott Magoon!

I am VERY EXCITED to announce that the wonderful Scott Magoon will be illustrating my upcoming picture book BIG MEAN MIKE!

That is all. I just wanted to share. :)

p.s. "Upcoming" in the publishing world is of course not meant to imply "soon to be appearing" in any kind of normal-world-time sense. MIKE is currently tentatively scheduled for Fall 2012. But that is okay, because in the meantime there will be THE DRAGON OF TRELIAN PAPERBACK (this fall!) and ARGUS (2011, illustrated by Andréa Wesson!) and THE DRAGON OF TRELIAN SEQUEL (which will one day have a real title!).


  1. you really should hold a fan contest for a sequel title. maybe get in touch with those newbury blueberry kids and give them the honor. or maybe something of a contest through candlewick. i think it's great marketing idea and takes some of the pressure off you at the same time

  2. TRELIAN should be a movie!

  3. David - interesting idea! I do have one possible title contender already, but need to see if it ends up really fitting the story by the end.

    And Dad - that sure would be nice! :)

  4. Yay for Scott Magoon's illus!

  5. Just wanted to bop over and say thanks for stopping by terribleminds.

    And then I see you're the author of over 40 children's books.


    Incredible! Congrats, and keep up the awesome work.
