Hey hey… the Louisville Courier-Journal just named Sidney & Norman one of the best children's books of the year! That's pretty cool, eh? I'm not sure how many other newspapers publish this sort of list, but we'll have to keep our eyes open. Let me know if you spot our pigs on any lists in your neck of the woods.
And by the way, it makes a great Christmas present! If you're looking for gift ideas, our friends in Louisville are here to tell you you'll be hard-pressed to find a better children's book! (At least this year, anyway.) Pick up a copy or two from your local Christian bookstore, Amazon or Christianbook.com. While your at it, you can preorder a copy of my book for grown-ups, Me, Myself & Bob, which already got a nice review in Publisher's Weekly. That book doesn't come out until January 9th, just in time for that post-Christmas "I need a new book" rush, but it never hurts to reserve your copy early to avoid that whole Wii/PS3 fiasco. Fist fights, shootings, it could get ugly in front of your favorite Christian bookstore around midnight January 8th. Order now to avoid an ugly incident!
I'm finished being self-promotional now.
Awesome! I think i’ll git it. 🙂
Lol, you’re too funny Phil! And thats pretty cool indeed! Great job with the book, it near brought tears to this teens eye =P. Well anyway you can be almost sure I will be the first to buy ‘Me Myself & Bob’, it should be very interesting….
and I’ll go to the book store armed and with a bulletproof vest. =)
I’ll be ordering the new book within the next couple of weeks; whenever I finally get around to ordering Christmas gifts too :). Looking forward to it, Phil. Oh, and thanks for writing it; it serves to satisfy the insatiable curiosity of all of us Phil fans. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
cool, hopefullly I can import both from my local Christian bookstore in the UK
Yeah I defiantly don`t want to get into a fist fight in a Christian BookStore. Somehow I don`t think that would give a good witness! lol No but really I love your book!
Right – those people in line are just going to turn around and sell it on eBay. I’ll wait until the furor dies down.
i didnt even read it
I just finished reading “Me, Myself, & Bob.” I started it yesterday and could barely put it down. It was funny, sad, exciting and compelling to read. I will recommend it to my friends. By the way, I am a Children’s Pastor with a shelf of Veggie Videos/ DVD’s and several stuffed vegetabel characters on my bookshef. I am and will cotinue to be a VeggieFan. Rock on Bob!!
Rock on, Phil!! See you at Children’s Pastors’ Conference in Orlando- I hope to get my book signed!
blessings to you and your family.
Thank you Phil for “Me, Myself, & Bob.” It is a very sobering read. I loved your witty humor displayed throughout the book and I’m humbled by your insightful honesty and, well…”humbleness.” I have been a VeggieFan since day one. Our kid’s have grown-up on VeggieTales through the years. I will definately continue to follow your career and again, “thank you.”
