5 Things I'm Loving Right Now

I'm excited about environments that stimulate fun and creativity at work (like Pixar HQ above, as well as Skywalker Ranch and the Googleplex). Over at Alexander Kjerulf's Chief Happiness Officer blog you can check out 10 Seriously Cool Work Spaces.

Can't wait to read the new children's novel by John Boyne (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas), illustrated by Oliver Jeffers (The Incredible Book Eating Boy). It's just been announced at the Bologna Book Fair. Looking forward to getting hold of a copy. I love both Jeffers' and Boyne's stuff.

4. Designer, Gianluca Fallone

Gianluca is a 24-year-old Argentian designer living in London. Fallone has designed the cover for my new book, Mac Slater Hunts the Cool (US release April 6) and his stuff is really worth a look.

Mac Slater Hunts the Cool Site Hits the Web

We've just put up the site for my new book Mac Slater Hunts the Cool (April 6, Simon & Schuster US). I love the look of it (designed by Amber Melody, based on book design by Chloe Foglia and illustration by Gianluca Fallone).

At the site you can read the first action-packed chapter, watch a two-minute vlog intro to Mac and I, see the book trailer, buy a book, link to my Simon & Schuster page and soon there'll be downloads and other fun stuff.
