PBNAUTS! I'm back from tooling around the universe, and wowie, what an adventure! There were good parts (Disney World) and there were stinky parts (getting swine flu, which I'm still fighting--SNORT-SNORT!). But, it's SO good to be home! And what a great day it is here on PB Planet, because today is JOEY FLY, PRIVATE EYE day!
Joey Fly, Private Eye in Creepy Crawly Crime by Aaron Reynolds, illustrated by Neil Numberman (Henry Holt Books for Young Readers, 2009).
I know you hipsters have probably already heard of/read/bought multiple copies of this new AWESOME insect-o-rama whodunnit graphic novel that's got folks buzzing (pardon my bad pun).
You've probably already oohed and aahed at the AMAZING book trailer:
You've probably already caught some of the cool promo posts on other blogs--it's okay, I know you read other blogs--or checked out the sweet websites o' Aaaron and Neil: www.aaron-reynolds.com or www.neilnumberman.com.
You may even be following the wry humor of Joey Fly and Sammy Stingtail on Twitter:
But, I KNOW you haven't yet read this EXCLUSIVE mini Q&A with author Aaron Reynolds:
ME: So Aaron, if you could be a bug for a day, what kind would you be, and what would you do with your 24 buggy hours?
AARON: I think I'd want to be a grasshopper, and I'd probably just eat gum off the ground the whole time.
EWWW! (But hey, the guy's authored several rockin' books--including the new Joey Fly books in the works right now--so who are we to judge?)
Guess what? (Alright, who said "chicken butt!"?) Just click on the handy title of today's post to connect to Amazon.com, where you can peek inside Joey Fly (the book, not the fly himself--that would be gross) and conveniently order! Order for yourself, your kids, your mystery-lovin' friends, your teacher, your classroom (great for Insect Week!), your nieces and nephews, the paper boy, your pest control guy... oops, shouldn't have gone there.
Got praise or a question for Aaron and Neil? They're lurking in the shadows today (in a nice way), ready to respond to your comments!
Enjoy, PBnauts! New post soon.
