Thursday, February 28 is National Science Day!
And Friday, March 1 is the book birthday for Scampers Thinks Like a Scientist!
Did Kirkus Reviews like Scampers? Why, yes, it did.
Did Foreward Reviews like Scampers? Five stars says yes!
Is Mike Allegra shamelessly promoting Scampers? No. I am filled with shame. But the shame is worth it! I think Scampers is the best picture book I’ve ever written. And it’s got cute widdle mice in it!
Seriously, just look at this adorable face:
Wanna buy a copy?

I am SO excited that Scampers is a real live book at last! Well, you know what I mean…
Adding this one to the burgeoning “Allegra” section of my bookshelf right away!
Hooray! You are a very wise shopper, Cathy.
Oh I’m sure I probably will continue with the Allegra Wing in my house.
Wow! You have an Allegra WING?! That’s impressive! And maybe a tad stalker-y.
Congratulations, Mike! Can’t wait to read it.
Thanks, Robin! How are you doing these days?
Much better. Thanks for asking.
Love the pics, best of success . . . .just saying, Claudia
I know! Those mice are impossibly cute! I could not have been luckier to get paired with Elizabeth Zechel.
Happy book birthday eve to sweet and smart Scampers!
Thank you, my friend!
Sounds like it’s right up my alley! I’ve put in an order at my local indie bookstore, the famous Village Books!
Ginny, you are a lovely, lovely person. Thank you!
I love stories about cute little mice. Look forward to reading this book!
Awesome. Hope you enjoy it! (And hey, in you ever wanna do an author interview on your blog… Jes’ sayin’!)
Congrats, Mike. That is a cute widdle mouse. 🙂 And congrats on the reviews to kick off your shameful promotion. 🙂 🙂 Wishing you loads of sales!
Yeah, the hard sell is not really my thing. When I do it, I kind of have to play a character.
You always add humor, Mike, which goes over well. I just add angst. Lol.
Even when I was traditionally published, I had to market, so there wasn’t any less pain in that department. Now it’s done and I can move on until the next awkward moment. 🙂
Adorable! It reminds me of the article from Germany recently where a rat was stuck in a home and they rescued it. It went viral.
I saw a story about a pudgy German rat stuck in a manhole cover.
Way to support our fine rodent friends, Germany!
What I love the most about the manhole cover story is, after they rescue the rat, they put him right back in the sewer! He wasn’t treated like vermin, he was just a pudgy, furry fellow in a little bit of a pickle!
I’m going to suggest my library add another room soon to house the MICHAEL ALLEGRA COLLECTION. I’ll be the first to donate!
You are the best Godmother a fella could have, Aunt Elaine.
Congrats on the book! And how ADORABLE is Scampers?!
To answer your question: VERY!
Scampers is so adorable for a mouse. I just added the book to my Amazon cart. Yes, an Allegra section in my extensive bookshelves. I like the idea. 🙂
Thank you, Pam! Here’s hoping you and your wee ones enjoy it!
Congrats Mike!! Scampers is the cutest mouse ever!!! And you are the coolest children’s author… love the illustrations. So beautifully done! 💜
Aw. And you have the biggest heart in Texas.
So cute…I had to buy one! 😁😁
Thanks so much, Mrs. P! Hope you enjoy it!
