What’s That Clinging To The Bottom Of the NYT Bestseller List?

You have to squint to see it…but it’s there. Yay!

Many, many thanks to everyone at Little Brown Young Readers, without whose heroic efforts this never would’ve happened — especially Andrea Spooner, Liz Casal, Megan Tingley, Andrew Smith, Melanie Chang, Emilie Polster, Lisa Moraleda, Russ Busse, Deirdre Jones, Victoria Stapleton, Kristin Dulaney, Allegra Green, Adrian Palacios, and anybody else I forgot…

Hey, Chicago/San Francisco/LA: come see me!

THE TAPPER TWINS GO TO WAR (WITH EACH OTHER) is in stores now! Which is nice.

And I’m going on a short book tour! Which will also be nice…but only if people show up to the events. Sooooooo here’s the list:


GeoffRodkeyMonday, April 13 — 7:00 pm — Anderson’s Bookshop — Naperville, IL


Tuesday, April 14 — 4:30 pm — Niles Public Library — Niles, IL



BURL-Geoff-RokdeyThursday, April 16 — 4:00 pm — Burlingame Public Library — Burlingame, CA








Sunday, April 19 — 12:00 pm — LA Times Festival of Books — Los Angeles, CA (USC campus) — YA Stage (panel discussion w/Mac Barnett, Jory John, Mo O’Hara, and Leila Howland) 


It’ll be fun! The events are free, I tell a lot of jokes, and I swear I won’t make you feel guilty if you don’t buy a book. Although if you’re going to go to all the trouble of coming out, I mean…y’know…

Hope to see you next week!
