FREE PIZZA! At the TAPPER TWINS TEAR UP NEW YORK launch party!

You know what’s great? FREE PIZZA!


You know what else is great? THE TAPPER TWINS TEAR UP NEW YORK — the hilarious, chock-full-of-photos sequel to the New York Times bestseller THE TAPPER TWINS GO TO WAR (WITH EACH OTHER)!
And if you drop by 
Books of Wonder at 18 West 18th Street at 6:00pm on September 29th, you can enjoy BOTH of these things!

Along with an (optional) in-store scavenger hunt! Which, unlike the scavenger hunt in THE TAPPER TWINS TEAR UP NEW YORK, will hopefully not cause a riot. (At least not in the pejorative sense of the word.)


PLUS, I’ll regale you with behind-the-scenes photos and anecdotes from the making of the book! Including:


— The terrifying story of my near-assault at the hands of a deranged loiterer in Times Square while wearing an off-brand Cookie Monster costume

— The best Lower East Side tailor to use when custom-designing T-shirts for a 9-inch-tall school mascot


— Why forcing my 12-year-old to serve as a photo model against his will was, all things considered, probably not the best choice for either the book or our relationship (and who I found to replace him for the reshoots)


If you can’t make it out for what I promise will be the best free pizza available within delivery range of 18th Street and 5th Avenue, you can still 
order an autographed copy from Books of Wonder OR get a copy from a different purveyor of quality children’s literature and enjoy what I guarantee is the ABSOLUTELY BEST photo-illustrated comedy about a New York City scavenger hunt gone horribly awry that you’ll read all year!


And be sure to check out 
TapperTwins.com for a ton of fun content — including the hilarious Tapper Twins Video Guide To The Wildlife Of New York City, which my publisher swears they’re going to post any day now!


Hope to see you on the 29th!

PS: if you ABSOLUTELY CAN’T WAIT until the 29th to see me in person, come by my panel discussion on Sunday, Sept. 20th at 11:00am at the Brooklyn Book Festival’s Youth Stage. You have no idea how grateful I’ll be to see you there. (Seriously.)

PPS: if you live anywhere near Houston, Texas, come by the Tweens Read Festival on Saturday, October 3rd to meet me, Lemony Snicket, and 20 other children’s book authors who are much more famous than I am!
