I’ve just gotten advanced reader copies of my new picture book, Everybody’s Favorite Book!
The hardcover will be out in stores on October 30. Here’s a peek.
I predict that it’s gonna be a smash hit because this book something that no other picture book has: everything for everybody.
Some people say you can’t please everybody; those people are quitters. Everybody’s Favorite Book is everybody’s favorite book for a reason. It’s a book that contains everything you love about other books…and more! Why settle for a hero who is a spaceman or a ninja or a cowboy when you can have a Space Ninja Cow! See? Better! And that’s not all! You like villians? My villain is the most villainous villain ever. Prefer pretty princesses? This book has the prettiest, most princessy princess you’ve ever seen! How about spies? Animals? Wizards? Zombies? Check, check, check, and check! Need a poop joke? A vocabulary boost? A time-waster for your little brother? No problemo.
See? Everybody’s Favorite Book goes the extra mile to be everything for everybody! What could possibly go wrong? Nothing! Or maybe everything. I’m not sure. I don’t remember how the book ends.
But I do know what you’re thinking: “Can I pre-order this?”
And the answer is yes. Yes, you can. In fact, you should. Click HERE.
And if you do pre-order it, I’ll be your bestest friend forever. That means someday I might help you move a couch. That’s a pretty good deal if you ask me.

Congrats! Love the cover!
Thanks! Claire is one of the most versatile illustrators I’ve ever seen.
Wow! Exciting stuff Mike!
And you read an early draft!
Oh, and you will especially appreciate the book’s giant guinea pig (named Snuggy).
You had me at space ninja cow.
I thought you’d might like that character. His name is Bob.
Bob the Ninja Cow. I surmise he will have his own breakout series.
If he is a space cow will he get a TARDIS?
No, he will not.
Remember, it’s bigger on the inside, in case that was an issue. Cows do need room to move around. The macarena prevails upon them at given moments. Even ninja cows.
I know you’re on a Dr. Who kick, Cricket, but I never cottoned to that sci-fi series. Maybe we could put Bob on the Nostromo?
What?!? Alien? Is Bob on the menu?
Congratulations! It sounds amazing! Our family will love it (along with everybody else!).
Thanks, EK! And if anyone in your family doesn’t like it, let me know what he or she usually likes. Because sequel!
I do like silly concepts.
It looks wonderful! Big, big congrats to you!
Thanks! And congrats to you on your book, too!
Apparently you are going to have to help me move two couches. Congratulation, Mike! I’m looking forward to recieving the books.
I like the way you think, Michelle. The more books you buy, the more couches I move!
NOW you’ll help with a couch! Where were you last October when I bought my new couch and needed help with it?? *sigh*
Looking at buying a copy of each of your books. hmmmmmmmmmmmm will that mean you’ll help me move back to Minnesota???
I don’t think, in good conscience, I could assist anyone in moving to Minnesota.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAH wait….WHAT? I grew up there!!
I’m sure it’s a lovely state, but now you are too good for Minnesota.
ah. Good save hon
You’ve been busy, Mike. What excitement. We’re waiting for our Prince Not so Charming books (2 of them). August, Amazon told me. *Sigh* But we can’t wait. 🙂 Good luck with the new one! It sounds hilarious.
Ah, Prince Not-So Charming is well worth the wait! And this book is, too! And Prince Not-So Charming books 3 and 4 can be pre-orded BTW! And they are also worth the wait!
Just keep waiting! It’s totally worth it!
Congrats Mike. Your book sounds like a wild and wacky adventure!
Wild and Wacky (and James) are my middle names!
Welll, does the book include a teacup pig…???? Welllll???
No, but it has a guinea pig the size of a mastodon, which is better.
Oh. That works! So excited about your new book!
Awesome! Congrats! I look forward to liking it! 😀
I look forward to you liking it too! Gimmie no fewer than seventeen bookworms, ya hear?
How exciting to receive you ARCs. Congratulations. And, thanks for the sneak peek! I can’t wait to read it! It look hilarious. The kid in you has been unleashed in you in Everybody’s Favorite Book!
Yeah, this book did allow me to embrace the silliness in my soul. It’s quite a departure from Sarah Gives Thanks!
