STUPENDOUS ALERT! GEEKS, GIRLS, and SECRET IDENTITIES IS HERE!

Go ahead! Do a happy dance! Rush outside and party in the streets! Because Mike Jung’s fun and funny book GEEKS, GIRLS, AND SECRET IDENTITIES hits the shelves TODAY (along with it’s birthday twin, LEAGUE OF STRAYS, that we celebrated all last week.)

And speaking of LEAGUE OF STRAYS, we have a WINNER!!!! Congratulations to Kelly Winningham, who will be receiving the signed copy from L.B. herself!

But back to GEEKS GIRLS AND SECRET IDENTITIES. As Publishers Weekly so aptly notes:

“Debut author Jung smartly balances adventure and comedy…. Jung’s fast-paced storytelling, filled with comics-inspired gadgetry and sound effects, makes the story’s action sequences come alive, and thanks to Maihack’s b&w spot illustrations, Vincent, Polly, and the others look like they’re ready to star in an animated series.”

But no need to wait for the animated series! We’ve got a week long party coming atcha,  with a whole, big, bucket load of goodies for you–in depth and thought provoking interviews with the illustrator and the editor, a critical analysis from young readers, and some heavy-duty investigative reporting, delving into the secret world of fan clubs.

And today, to get it started, we have Santa Duck and Zombie Buddy with an introduction to the book and its deeper central themes.  If you are a follower of Santa Duck and Zombie Buddy videos, you might notice some minor alterations to the production, but probably not. They’re minor, and we have adhered to the same level of high, ultra-professional quality you’ve come to expect from the fabulous Dead and Duck Duo.

Don’t you just love giant robots? Stick around all week to celebrate Mike’s fabulous new book!

  1. What better way to launch a book birthday than with a Santa Duck and Zombie Buddy video?? Their disguises were impressive–I didn’t recognize them at all! The “dude”and “yo” mentions were the only clues.

    We’ve had scary robots at our house just like that monstrous one in your living room, Jeannie. Now they’re even scarier–TALLer and LOUDer! Ack! Send Captain Stupendous!!!!

      There’s no better way, is there? And it really is impressive how much acting range Zombie Buddy and Santa Duck are showing these days!

      • That robot is going to be celebrating her first birthday in about four days. Maybe she will invite Santa Duck and Zombie Buddy to her birthday party, and who knows, after eating a big slice of birthday cake…

    It’s amazing how they even disguised their voices. See? This is what happens when we don’t let Mike run his own show. (Ducking, so to speak.) Congrats, Mike!!!! Your book is beside me right now. Yay!
