Also, THANK YOU so much to everyone who waited on line at BEA to get an early, signed copy of BIG MEAN MIKE! It meant a lot to see people getting excited about the book, and I hope you all enjoy the story.

There were many teachers and librarians among you, and I especially love the thought of signed copies of MIKE going back to your schools and libraries to be shared with others in those communities. (Of course, I am also happy to think of books going back to individual homes to be shared with children and grandchildren and given as gifts, too!)

You can see a few photos from BEA on my Facebook page.

PW review of BIG MEAN MIKE!

Hooray! Publishers Weekly reviewed BIG MEAN MIKE on June 4. My favorite line:

"Knudsen (Argus) offers an uncompromisingly macho version of the defend-your-friends theme, and its cultural references (combat boots, gym membership) and the inherent humor in seeing the bunnies charm their way into Mike’s heart will keep readers attentive—and laughing."

You can see the whole review here.

MIKE hits stores on August 14, 2012. Stay tuned for special pre-order info!
