Something exciting!

Thursday, September 27th, 2007

Hi Everybody!

I have some exciting news to share with you.  A lot of people have asked if the Mallory books are available in Spanish and now they are going to be!  You can already buy Mallory on the Move in Spanish.  The new title is Mallory Se Muda.  I’ve pasted in a picture of the cover below.  If you’ve been waiting to read Mallory in Spanish, I hope you enjoy it!


 Talk to you soon!

A new book and an old favorite

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007

Hi Everybody!

I want to tell you about a new book and an old favorite.

Old things first:

One of my favorite books I’ve written in the Mallory series is Back to School, Mallory.  I’ve written a lot lately about going back to school, but that’s the thing that seems to be on everyone’s mind.  New schools and new school years can be a challenge.  It certainly was for Mallory when she started third grade at Fern Falls Elementary.  If you want to read about her back-to-school experience, I hope you’ll pick up a copy of Back to School, Mallory and give it a try.  

Back to School, Mallory

Now . . . on to the new!

Honestly, Mallory! is the latest book that’s out in the Mallory series.  In this book, Mallory tells a little lie that gets really big before she can stop it.  The result is a big mess and Mallory has to figure out what to do about it.  Even though I felt badly for Mallory and all of the trouble she got herself into, the book was a lot of fun to write. 


I hope you have fun reading all of the Mallory books!

Talk to you soon!

More from Minneapolis

Friday, September 14th, 2007

Hi Everybody!

I told you a little bit about my trip to Minneapolis, but I didn’t tell you everything.  While I was there, not only did I read and sign books at the Target Book Festival, but I also went to visit my publisher, Lerner Books.  Harry Lerner, the man who started the company, took me on an awesome tour of their book bindery and distribution center.

The book bindery is where the books are put together after they are printed.  The distribution center is where the books are stored until they are shipped off to schools and stores and libraries.  I’ve never seen so many books!

Here are some pictures.


I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed the tour.

Talk to you soon!
