Well, my latest book is for the little guys.
PINGO is about a kid whose imaginary friend becomes his imaginary enemy when he tries to stop believing in him. The premise sounds slightly psychotic, but the story ends up being a funny tale about friendship and imagination.
As with all of my books, I try to amuse myself along with the kids, so hopefully any picture book fans will have a great time. The book works well as a read aloud, and is complemented by fantastic art by Brandon Dorman, the #1 New York Times bestselling illustrator who did all of my Fablehaven covers.
I'm proud of PINGO, and eager for readers to discover it. The book just came out. I know it can be found at bn.com and Amazon, and I'm sure it should now start appearing on bookstore shelves nationwide.
I'm not saying if you love Fablehaven, you'll love PINGO, because they are very different books. I am saying, if you're into picture books, and you trust my judgment because of Fablehaven, PINGO should deliver for you.
I'm currently working on chapter 19 of Fablehaven book 5. The book feels really cool so far. I expect the new Fablehaven to launch in March or April of 2010.
