"Chupacabra" hoopla

Three recent honors for The Chupacabra Ate the Candelabra, which releases tomorrow:


Children's Book Council "Hot Off the Press" list (3/17); a "unique bibliography [featuring] anticipated bestsellers"


The Spring 2017 Kids' Indie Next List Preview; these 52 titles "are based on recommendations from booksellers at independent bookstores"

"Oh boy, is this going to be a hoot and a half to read aloud! While children are giggling during story time, they'll be soaking up wonderful new words like 'candelabra,' 'cucaracha,' and 'chupacabra.' This is a delicious read-aloud that will keep kids on the edge of their seats, but in a most benign and silly way."
—Kathleen Carey, Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza, Albany, NY


#1 in children's multicultural titles on Amazon (2/16/17)

I signed my first copy of the book at Thompson Elementary in Arlington, MA, on 3/2/17. Since it doesn't officially release till 3/7, I was surprised they had copies already.

Thank you to all who have supported the book.
