Cold Cereal Available In Stores

I mean, obviously.  But my new book, Cold Cereal, is also now available.  I'm visiting schools in the midwest at the moment and couldn't make the time to really mark the occasion of its official on sale date earlier today, as I was too busy teaching children about the concept of the Uncanny Valley vis รก vis pictures like the one to the right.

But Cold Cereal is available!  Now!  I was super flattered today to see that its audiobook performer, Oliver Wyman, called it the best kid's book he's ever read.  So.

Here are some Mick paper dolls for your amusement.  If there's enough interest I'll put high-res versions up somewhere and people can use 'em for bookmarks.

Hooray! Can't wait to get my hands on this book. =)

So cool! Will have to get this, my husband's name is Mick--he'll love this!

Adam Rex said...

Oh, cool–I think he'll like Mick, too. He's probably my favorite character.

Does that little Mick maquette have stubble marks on his chin?

Did you do maquettes for any of the other characters?! I wanna see 'em!

Adam Rex said...

Just Mick, Phil. And yeah, Mick has a little texture and a blue wash on his chin.

Just finished Cold Cereal earlier today. It's brilliant! I can't wait for the next installment.

Are you going to do any signings when you get back to Arizona?

Adam Rex said...

Yes! I'll be at Changing Hands Bookstore in Tempe on Saturday March 3rd at 2PM, and I'll be at the Tucson Festival of Books. I think my festival events are all day on March 10th, but I'm sure to be around on the 11th as well. I'll be posing about the festival as it gets closer, anyway.
And in May I'll be up at the Northern Arizona festival in Flagstaff. Hope I see you.

Book sounds fabulous! Can't wait to read it. The white singlet is fine, he just needs some navy blue boxer shorts and bare feet.

Loved Cold Cereal! I always read my kid's books when or before they do, just to make sure we can talk about them as they go. I got it as a reco from NoveList. I would love to get a high-rez download of Mick with paper doll clothes, that's hilarious. Good show, keep it up! Can't wait for volume II!

Adam Rex said...

Thanks, diablito! I'll hopefully post that high-res version soon.

Just got my copy today, the Doctor (Not-Vivian) made me laugh, mostly because my name is Vivian.
