Summer 2014


Happy Birthday Bill!

And because it's Bill's B-Day we're giving him a newsletter off. But we had some stuff that we wanted to share so Debbie and Michele are taking over. We asked Harpo and Roscoe if they'd like to contribute, but they declined. In fact, they just walked away.

Charlie Bumpers vs. the Squeaking Skull  

The third book in the Charlie Bumpers series is officially out September 1. Charlie will be back to blog and Peachtree is working on some fun ideas (and some giveaways). We'll let you know more closer to the date. The advance reviews have already been great:

"Life is the best teacher, and if Charlie can survive all the troubles that come his way, maybe others can too." Kirkus Reviews

"good-hearted, engaging and well crafted" Pop Bop at

"The humor continues to be perfect for the book's intended audience, and the predicaments seem real to life. This is a series that I will continue to read for its honesty." Barbara at

And Book 1 Charlie Bumpers vs. the Teacher of the Year will be out in paperback as well. So if you haven't read the series, it'll be a good time to start.
