School Visit – Wilton, CT


I am delighted to be speaking to the fifth graders at Cider Mill school on December 16th.   A fun game, followed by Q&A, a reading and a prize.  It should be an action-packed 45 minutes!



Grug Giveaway!

I am giving away one original, signed illustration from Kyle Evans and The Key to the Universe.  The picture is of a Grug (a rather unpleasant creature with a healthy appetite), and it is the genuine article: the original hand-drawing by James Chapman.

If you would like a chance to win this awesome drawing, please email me at  Please write “Grug Picture” in the subject line, and include your name, city and state in the body of the email.  If you do not want to receive emails from me about new books and events in your area, please also write “No” in the body of the email (this makes no difference to your chance of winning!).

One winner will be drawn on February 1st, 2017.  Please, only one entry per family.

Good luck!grug
