The Return of Mr. Magee!

Thursday November 19, 2009

Every few days I receive a note from someone having trouble finding the Mr. Magee books, especially A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee. I really appreciate you taking the time to write to me, and I apologize that you’ve had such a hard time. Camping Spree did indeed go out of print for awhile, but I have good news to report – both Magee books will be reprinted in hardcover by Chronicle Books, and they’ll be available in January! For those of you who wrote, I forwarded your e-mails to Chronicle and thanks to you, they’re bringing Magee back! Hooray!! 

If you’re a fan of the Magee books, you might also be interested in knowing that my next book will be another Magee story. It’s called Learning to Ski with Mr. Magee and I’m working on the final paintings right now. It will be out next winter, 2010. I think you’ll like it. My wife thinks it’s the funniest Magee book yet!

So thank you! Because of your interest, not only are the first two books coming back, but they’ll be joined by another stumbling, bumbling Magee adventure – the Mr. Magee Tril-oh-gee! Stay tuned!
