Today is…

Thursday, February 28 is National Science Day!

And Friday, March 1 is the book birthday for Scampers Thinks Like a Scientist!

Wooooo!

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:

Awww! (Illustrator Elizabeth Zechel is a genius.)

Wanna buy a copy?

Because you really should!

And thanks!

In Case You’re Wondering…

A couple of people have asked me why I changed my blog avatar to an illustration of a cute, widdle mouse peeking through the grass.

Oh, I have my reasons.

This illustration (by the incomparable artist Elizabeth Zechel) is a detail from a larger illustration.

Click to enlarge. Cuz you should! It’s purty!

And that illustration appears in the soon-to-be-released picture book, Scampers Thinks Like a Scientist!

It’s educational AND funny!

And, yes! You can preorder it here in either hardcover or paperback.
