Today’s the day!
Geeger the Robot To the Rescue is now available wherever books are sold!
This is the third book in my Geeger the Robot series of early chapter books, and I believe it to be the strongest one yet. In the book, Geeger’s best friend in the whole entire galaxy, Tillie, is having an off day, and Geeger takes it upon himself to cheer her up. Unfortunately for Geeger, he struggles to do so. His jokes, which usually inspire gut-busting laughter, barely even make Tillie to smirk. His kind overtures and thoughtful questions all fall flat. But in this failure is an important realization, one that Geeger arrives at with the help of his teacher, Ms. Bork: it’s totally okay to have “blah” days. Sometimes, we just wake up on the wrong side of the bed — or, if you’re Geeger, the wrong side of your DIGEST-O-TRON 5000. Bad moods aren’t always necessarily bad. They are a real, inescapable part of life. And Geeger learns that in such situations, one of the best things a best friend can do is simply remind your gloomy pal that you’re there for them if they need you. That can be enough. That, in fact, can be EVERYTHING.
As with all my Geeger the Robot books, I hope Geeger the Robot To the Rescue brings my readers lots of joy and laughter, and that it leads to some interesting, productive conversations in the schools, libraries, and homes in which it is read and discussed. Thank you to everyone who has supported this series, and everyone who plans to support this latest installment by purchasing a copy or checking it out from your local library (and remember: if either your local bookshop or library doesn’t have a copy, just ask, and they can get it there for you!). It’s thanks to all of YOU that this series has become such a success, and I am tremendously grateful.
Now, I’ve got to get back to finishing up Geeger the Robot Books 4, 5, and 6. Geeger and I will see you soon!
