THE TRUMPETER'S NEW CLOTHES IS AMAZEBALLS

Small balls, big balls.
Short balls, tall balls.
Some people have more balls than others.

But the biggest balls of all,
The balls that make me laugh until I fall
Are the balls behind the newest book on my wall:




Congratulations to author Robyn Alana Engel and illustrator Steve Ferchaud, who have a new book coming out on Monday (cover designed by Bryan Pedas of A Beer For The Shower fame). I had the privilege of a preview and thought it quite clever, which is no surprise since it comes from the insane brain behind Life by Chocolate.

Here's a little taste of what you'll get when this book belongs to you:

One of the King’s most favored
things of all
was to swing
long rods at tiny balls.

Clueless Clan fans cheered him on.
“You win, feared Man!
You do know wrong!”

The King replied,
“I no good, it’s true.
I wrote the

Star Scrambled Egg song too!”

The Trumpeter's New Clothes is a short book, about the length of a young child's book, but it's an adult read. The illustrations are excellent and made me laugh out loud. This is a book you'll want to take to parties to share with your friends.

The Trumpeter's New Clothes earns The Highest Balltastic Janie Junebug Seal of Approval.




Note: The book begins with a warning that it's not for those who lean orange,and watch out if you have a case of sandarakinophobiatoo.

The book is now available on Amazon at https://goo.gl/M8jqda

  1. Woohoo. If someone was going to leak this info, I sure am glad it came from Janie Junebug and not that annoyingly frigid Martha Stewart. Love it and you.
    It will be appropriately linked on my blog - fingers and toes crossed - by Monday morn. And yes, Bryan AND Steve are phenomenal. As are you.

    THANK YOU!

    PS Monday, I'll be announcing the winner of a free signed copy too. (The winner has been informed). =)

    1. Sweetie, you have to enter (in this case, guess) to win. But you're still a wiener, whiner, and winner to me.

  2. I was just thinking about The Emperor's New Clothes and wondered if kids still know that story. This must be a fresh take on it.
    It looks good to me!

    1. Kay, yes. It's one of the most brilliant children's tales of all time. It's a dim memory for kids who do remember, so it needed a remake. With my illustrator's encouragement and ideas, we did just that. Thank you ladies.

  3. Woo Hoo. Yet another book to lust after.
    Yay Robyn and her talented illustrator(s).

    1. Don't tell Robyn I said so, but the illustrations are as good as the writing.

    2. You're being kind. The illustrations are (even) better than the writing. Thank you, EC and JJ.

  4. Sounds like a fun book! We Canadians are royally pissed of at the Trumpeter right now. He's ruining what was, until now, the strongest trading partnership in the world. So, we need a good laugh. Thanks for the review.

    2. I know, Debbie. Grrr. It's infuriating and so much worse to all of us who have hearts and brains. And to go against your nation, and Trudeau, like that? For no reason whatsoever. All I can say that isn't full of nasty words: I think you'll like this book. The covfefe cannon pickle is the climax. Right, JJ? Smiles.
      Thank you.

    1. Yes, my dear. I'm working on that post right now. Janie is faster than me - that's the word on the street, at least. (I'm easier, but we all know this). Ha.
      Will have the full low down Monday, but for now I posted an insanely long link above. Thank you!

    2. Ask Willy Dunne Wooters if I'm fast. He knows.

    3. He said he does his best to keep up and he's routinely in need of an oxygen tank. Is that right? Did I talk to the correct Willy Dunne Wooters?

  9. Ohhhh, now I understand Robyn's recent posts! This looks absolutely f***ing brilliant! And that cover illustration is terrific.

    "Trumpeter." Heh.

    1. Ha! Thank you, Silver. I appreciate it.
      Someone HAD to write this one. I took the covfefe cannon ball, for the world's sake.

    1. Hot off the press! I'm just now getting it into the world. It was a therapeutic write and critics are raging mad, or some will be. Smiles.

      Thank you, Angela.

  12. Sounds fantabulous! And no problem about any orange-leaning from this end. I'm so anti-orange, I won't even wear my favorite orange tee shirt.

    1. I don't allow orange in my house--not even the fruit.

    2. No orange anything. He ruined the color for all time.

    1. Steve Ferchaud illustrated it. Bryan of the beer boys designed the cover. I think everyone misses the beer boys.

      Thanks for clarifying, JJ.
      Love.
