I’ve had two more book releases this summer and both are from the beautiful, buildable world of LEGO!
For all the early-reading LEGO fans, there’s LEGO City: Fix That Truck! and LEGO City: Look Out Below! Read the stories that compliment some of the brand new toy sets!
I hope you enjoy them and I hope they inspire you to create your very own LEGO adventures!

Now available–Night of the Giants! The second book in my original series Night at the Museum: Nick’s Tales.
Exclusively for Amazon Kindle, this junior novel follows the adventure of Nick Daley in the most amazing museum in the world. If you’re a fan of the movies, I truly think you’ll enjoy these books as much as I enjoyed writing them.
Promotional Copy: Continuing the adventures from the blockbuster film NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM this title follows Larry Daley’s teenage son Nick as he learns the ropes at the strangest museum in the world. This time, it’s trouble for Nick when two kids stow away in the museum and get their hands on the tablet of Akhmenrah. Now Nick must face the biggest challenge of his young life as he tries to defeat two giant bullies, take back the tablet, and save all of his friends.
Announcing the release of my third Penguins of Madagascar book: Elite Strike Force!
I seriously enjoy writing these books because they’re action-packed, loaded with laughs, and … I get to watch all the cartoons for research! How cool is that? This marks my third POM book and my first POM comic reader.
If you’re a fan of the penguins (and who isn’t), you should also check out my other POM books: Skipper’s Log and King Julien’s Guide to Ruling the Zoo. Both are written from the characters’ points of view and (if I did my job right) you can actually hear their voices in your head as you read!
With the Apple approval process shutting down for the holidays, Issue #8 (Big Red Boot Camp) ended up being a couple days late on its release. But it’s out now so be sure to check it out if you have the Clown Commandos iPhone app. And if don’t have the app (and just so happened to get an iPad or iPod Touch for Christmas, be sure to download the free comic book app HERE.
We had a great time writing and voicing this issue so please give it a go if you get a chance. And keep up to date on all Clown Commandos activity by checking out the official Facebook page, Twitter account, and Clownblog.
Released this week is another one of my LEGO City books—Catch That Crook! These have been great fun to write, especially since LEGO insists on including plenty of jokes, gags, and slapstick. No problem! I’m happy to comply.
And if you’ve been keeping up with Clownblog at all, you’ll know that we’ve enjoyed seeing all of our Clown Commandos characters come to life in true LEGO minifig fashion. In fact, I’m growing into a LEGO fan all over again!
If you’re a LEGO or LEGO City fan (or know of a young one who needs a new early reader) you can order a copy of Catch That Crook! below.
My very own pit bull mix, Jahzara, and I are happy to announce that we donated a bunch of signed books to Books for Bullies—a special event to benefit Lilo’s Promise Animal Rescue. The books are signed by me as well as Jahzara—her first autographs!
If you live in New Jersey and are drawn to the lovable, yet often misrepresented Pit Bull, you should definitely attend!

My first Green Lantern Book is now available–Green Lantern: High-Tech Terror. I was a huge GL fan as a kid and got to rediscover the current series while researching this book. Sometimes I get to read comic books for a living! How cool is that?
This book is part of the DC Super Heroes series from Stone Arch Books and was written inside the current Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps comic series continuity–but created for a younger audience. So if there are any GL fans out there who want to introduce their young readers to the fearless Hal Jordan, the Green Lantern Corps, or even the Sinestro Corps, I recommend this book as well as any others in the series.
Okay, geek time is over.
Released today is the first of my Chuggington books, The Chugger Championship. For those unfamiliar with Chuggington, the show airs on Playhouse Disney, all the train characters are called “chuggers,” and they live and work in a town called Chuggington. This 8X8 picture book tells about the exciting tale of their big race around town and through the countryside!
With only a few sentences per page and bright colorful images pulled directly from the show, I’d recommend this for anyone just learning to read and/or fans of the show.
As they say in Chuggington, it’s train-tastic!
