Two out of Four Guys still going strong.
Still going so strong that they seem to have grown incredible extra muscles.

The Texas Bluebonnet Award folks asked me and Mac to announce the 2010-2011 Master List of books at the TEXAS BOOK FESTIVAL in Austin this weekend.

And since it was Halloween, Mac and I decided we should introduce the list with a little extra something.

The kids in the audience were absolutely dumbfounded.
The adults seemed mostly amused.
Mac and I enjoyed ourselves immensely.


  1. I really like your books. I like the "Guess Again!" book because it has really silly answers and I like "The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales" book because it's stories based on other stories but stupider. Keep making books! -Shaun
    Thanks for coming to Austin. We enjoyed hearing you talk and meeting you at the book signing! -Shaun's Dad

  2. THANK YOU for making our job easier! We mentor books with students grades 5-12, and it is always so difficult to get the guys to read! This blog is brilliant, and the Guys Read website has been so helpful to us. We really appreciate your work as Ambassadors for Young People's Literature as well as your excellent authorship.

  3. Yeah you enjoyed immensely the pictures say it all!
