SCARY on 5th Avenue

WE APPROACH THE SCARY TIME OF THE YEAR! And my little book SCARY: A Book of Horrible Things for Kids has been given the honor of getting a featured spot in a window in the NYC 5th avenue location of Barnes&Noble! Hey, hey, hey. Horris sure gets around, I'm happy to say. If you live nearby, drop in and then scream at the top of your lungs that you sure are glad they finally got some good books in, and then dash to the stack and try to grab them all at once. Or if that is just a tad too exuberant, stop by and buy one. AGAIN.

Of course, I kid.

The illustration (above) is actually not from the first book (the one on, ahem, fifth avenue), but is from the second in the non-fiction series, Horris' SCARY History of Ancient Egypt, which is done, but without a publisher at the moment. FOr once, Horris says do not fear! This will happen. I have a possible connection on that front; it is a different situation than I mentioned last post. But don't want to say anything here until I have good news for sure. Meanwhile enjoy yourself. Don't let the bedbugs bite. Or if they do, scoop 'em up and chew hard. That'll teach 'em.

"Barnes & Noble College Booksellers also operates the self-proclaimed "world's largest bookstore" located on 5th Avenue and 18th Street in New York City."


Whoops. I'll let this email clear this up:

your book is at an "upscale" b&n on 46th and 5th (i think my store is better than the one on 18th and fifth, shabby store is the textbook store). 46th and fifth is three blocks from times square, across the street from build a bear workshop and down the street from american girl (i.e. lots of kids, tourists, businessmen, and 'stars' are about) so horris has got his black lapels on, iguay! dis one:

Thanks for the email and correction, js. :)
