Mousenet (sorry, Muis.Net) is in Dutch

Mousenet just got translated, with the Big Cheese re-imagined as de Meestermuis, and Megan as Emma, and the Thumbtop as de Duimtop. Go, Dutch children!  Read, read, read. And demand translations of Mousemobile and Mouse Mission, which Google says should read something like Muismobiel and Muis Missie.

Mouse Mission

While I was away from this blog Mousemobile was anointed the Honor Book for the Green Earth Award, which seems to mean second place.

And Mouse Mission just came out! For this third book in the series, the Mouse Nation turns its attention to the plight of rain forests, and in particular one on a remote island nation in the Indian Ocean. Can mice save it from the ruthless timber company, Loggocorp? It depends partly on what the mice (and their humans) can find out on a trip to England, and not just any old part of England, but the palace of an eccentric duke.

Good things come in threes

This is a great week for the Mouse Nation:
  1. Mousemobile will be in bookstores on Tuesday, October 1st.
  2. I have just found out that Mousenet was nominated for the Magnolia Award for 2014. That's the Mississippi children's choice award, to go with Mousenet's nominations in Florida and Arizona.
  3. Hyperion-Disney has just agreed to publish Book Three of the series: Mouse Mission!

Kirkus review of Mousemobile

Nice notice in Kirkus Reviews:

“Charming sequel to Mousenet. . . . Mouse Nation’s efficient, rational society, from Mouse Sign Language to legal proceedings, remains enchantingly believable. Closing the book, readers may wonder: Will these mice return, and can they really stop climate change? They will hope so.”

A new date for Mousemobile

For months, the official publication date for Mousemobile was October 15th, but the publisher has decided to bring it out a couple of weeks early. It will be here October 1st.  Yay!

A guest blog

I'm guest-blogging this week on the site run by Ginny Rorby, whose YA book "Lost in the River of Grass" won the Florida Sunshine State Young Readers Award last spring. Find her blog at Oh, and it's about what it feels like to have a first book published.
