A Second Helping of Jellybeans!

News Flash!
March 27, 2010
"The Jellybeans and the Big Book Bonanza" hit the New York Times Bestseller list this week, debuting at #6! I was very happy and surprised. Thanks to all the fans of the Jellybeans! And thanks to everyone who loves books and reading. I dedicated "The Jellybeans and the Big Book Bonanza" to librarians and teachers everywhere for all the amazing work they do! Thank you!

The Jellybeans and the Big Book Bonanza

Here’s my first book of 2010, co-authored with the amazing Laura Numeroff! This is the sequel to the New York Times bestseller “The Jellybeans and the Big Dance.”

The Jellybeans and the Big Book Bonanza book cover The Jellybeans are back — this time in the library stacks to discover the wonderful world of reading.

When the Jellybeans go to the library to do research for book reports on the things they enjoy, Bitsy, who loves books more than anyone, is excited to bring her friends to her favorite place. Emily, who loves to dance, finds a book on ballet, Nicole, who loves sports, finds a book on soccer, and Anna, who loves art, finds a book on famous painters. But what about Bitsy? Can she find the perfect book, too?

The Jellybeans and the Big Dance

I co-wrote this picture book with the amazingly talented Laura "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" Numeroff. The charming, lively illustrations are by the wonderful artist, Lynn Munsinger. This book spent seven weeks on the New York Times Bestseller list. THANKS to all the fans of the Jellybeans!

The Jellybeans and the Big Dance book cover Emily loves to dance and can’t wait to meet the other girls in her class, who are sure to be just like her. But instead she meets Nicole, a tomboy who would rather be playing soccer; Bitsy, who loves arts and crafts; and Anna, a shy bookworm who has no interest at all in dancing. Realizing that they have to work together to make their dance recital a success, the girls learn to love each other’s differences and strengths as they band together and name their group the Jellybeans!

Set on the grimy streets of New Yolk City, these adventures star Humpty Dumpty Jr., a tough egg who always cracks the case…
