While supplies last.
To celebrate the release, in the past few weeks Mission Defrostable was named to the Indie Kids’ Next List, I traveled to Texas and met my cardboard-self, encountered a giant lighted sign with my head on it at a conference in Florida, signed all the books in the Concord Bookshop, and also visited the NYPL to celebrate the launch of my other fall release, Lost in the Library.

Wait, what’s the book about?
From the publisher: Brrr! There’s a frost in the fridge—and it’s hardened Pudding Pond and frozen Yogurt Falls. Agent Asparagus is on the case, and she begs Lady Pancake and Sir French Toast to join her superspy team. But when the enemy snatches Asparagus, Pancake and French Toast have only one man to turn to for help: the evil Baron von Waffle! Will he help them save the fridge . . . or are they doomed to become frozen food? Our favorite breakfast food friends are back and all bready for their next chilling adventure!
Then, came my first final copy of Albie Newton (illustrated by Ester Garay, published by Sterling, available 5.1.18):
I’m so excited to share this book! Albie Newton is a creative whiz. On his first day of school, he attempts to make friends – but he doesn’t necessarily understand the other children’s social cues and ends up causing lots of problems without realizing it.
It’s my sincere hope that this book acts as a mirror and window for many children and classrooms who need it.
*Advanced Reader Editions (or ARE’s) are Macmillans’ advanced copies of books. Most publishers create F&G’s (which stands for Folded & Gathered) when creating advanced copies of picture books – which do not have staples. Because Macmillan uses staples, they are more than just ‘folded and gathered’ – requiring a different name. But for all intents and purposes they serve the same function.
