Pre-order giveaway!

My book MINRS2 is out October 11th!

To celebrate I've cooked up a pre-order giveaway.

Pre-order MINRs2 before October 10th and I will send you a one-of-a-kind E-doodle. Like this...

Or this...

4x6 - Fit for printing and putting inside the book MINRS2.

All you have to do is send me the following at

1. Proof of purchase (screenshot of receipt or photocopy clearly showing the book name) 

2. How you would like the doodle personalized (i.e.: To Pat! To Jim! To Xenon!)

I'll email you the doodle. You can print it off and glue it in the book or whatever you'd like. It's yours!

School visit time!

I love doing school visits, and the time is upon us to start booking! DETAILS HERE

The presentations are high-energy and involve all sorts of lessons that teachers can take back to the classroom - lessons on working hard, thinking creatively and how to draw better stuff!

The fall is filling up fast, but there are still plenty of dates for winter and 2017. I also do SKYPE visits, and have done presentations all across North America, and even China! Twice!

GREAT, my book with the Gretzky Foundation, is out in September.

MINRs2 will be out in October.

Monster-Viewer Go!

So, there's this game out there, that seems awfully familiar. You point your tech in front of you and (miraculously) see little monsters.


Of course, you might prefer an analog version. You know - with the kids doing some reading and imagining.

Or you can think of the "Book" as a warm-up version for those kids who aren't quite ready for screens yet.

So, if you'd like some old-school, paper based Monster Viewing, you can find all the details HERE!

#SpacedOutBooks LAUNCHED!

Hello Space Lovers everywhere!

July 20th is Space Exploration Day, honouring the day humans first touched foot on the moon (that we know of anyway).

My buddy Wesley King and I have space books that we think you'll love MINRS and The Incredible Space Raiders... from SPACE!

(But there are LOTS out there and we'd love to hear your suggestions too).

So, for the next month we want to celebrate Space Exploration by giving away some FREE stuff.

Here's the deal.

Tweet us a pic of you reading, using the hashtag #SpacedOutBooks.

Each week, two lucky winners will get a copy of either MINRs or Space Raiders 

And everyone who enters will be eligible for a grand prize.

On July 20th we'll pick three schools or libraries each for a free Skype visit this fall.
