GEEGER THE ROBOT: PARTY PAL pub day!

Today, the first day of the month of February in the year 2022, my next book — my TENTH book — is officially out in the world. And it seems appropriate that I’ve reached this milestone with this book in particular. It’s Geeger the Robot: Party Pal, after all. It’s a book about CELEBRATION.

But it’s not just me who needs to be celebrated today. We also need to celebrate Ariah Lowell, one of the winners of my Draw the Author contest, whose brilliant portrait of me appears in Geeger the Robot: Party Pal. Today, Ariah is officially a published illustrator! (Click here and/or here to learn more about the contest — and keep your eyes peeled for an exciting, related announcement coming in the next day or two!)

If you preordered the hardcover version of Geeger the Robot: Party Pal, you should be getting your copy today. Starting today, you’ll also be able to find the hardcover version of the book wherever books are sold. The paperback version, however, is slightly late to the party. Three weeks late, to be exact — which, in the publishing world, really is only a slight delay. If you preordered a copy of Party Pal, you can expect it on February 22nd. And starting that day, you’ll also be able to find the paperback version wherever books are sold. See below to learn a bit more about this fourth book in the Geeger the Robot series. And to learn more about the other books in the series, head to the Geeger the Robot page of this website (or click here).

Thank you to everyone who has supported this series of mine — and who has supported me and my work in general. You have helped get me here, to my tenth published book, and I am enormously grateful. Now, here’s the next ten!

. . .

In this fourth book in the Geeger the Robot series, we find Geeger on his way to a birthday party. And not just any birthday party. It’s a birthday party for his best friend, Tillie! But Geeger has never been to a birthday party before. And he’s a bit confused about why all the other guests have brought these boxes with them, each one wrapped in shiny, fancily designed paper. What are they? Was Geeger supposed to bring one, too? When Geeger realizes he’s made a mistake, his excitement about the party sours. Can he figure out what to give Tillie before she realizes he showed up empty-handed? Find out in Geeger the Robot: Party Pal, available wherever books are sold!

GEEGER THE ROBOT: PARTY PAL Cover Reveal!

In case you missed it, I recently revealed the cover for the fourth book in my Geeger the Robot series of early chapter books, Geeger the Robot: Party Pal.

As you can see, it is TONS OF FUN. As you can also see, illustrator Serge Seidlitz and my team at Simon & Schuster/Aladdin once again absolutely CRUSHED IT. I couldn’t be more pleased with the cover — and it couldn’t be more perfect for the fourth book’s story.

Geeger the Robot: Party Pal comes out February 1, 2022, but is available now for preorder wherever you buy your books. (And, as always, if you purchase your copy from my local indie, Porter Square Books, I will stop by the shop and sign it for you! Click HERE to do that.) I look forward to sharing more about the book in the coming weeks and months. And until then, you can read the first two books in the Geeger the Robot series — Geeger the Robot Goes to School and Geeger the Robot: Lost and Found — and get excited for (and preorder if you haven’t yet!) the third book in the series, Geeger the Robot To The Rescue, which publishes on September 21, 2021.

I’m THRILLED to share that my Geeger the Robot series has been extended. There will now be SIX books in the series!

Thanks to everyone who has supported these early chapter books. I have tons of fun making them and I’m very proud of how each one has turned out.

The cover reveal for the fourth book in the Geeger the Robot series, Geeger the Robot: Party Pal, will be happening soon, so keep an eye out on my social media feeds or here for that. And more information — including publication dates for Party Pal and Books 5 and 6 — will be shared both there and here as soon as I’m able to.

And don’t forget: the third book in the Geeger the Robot series, Geeger the Robot To the Rescue, hits shelves on September 21st, but is available for preorder now wherever books are sold!
