A Boy and His Whale

Mac's first picture book, illustrated by Mr. Adam Rex, is out now. It's the story of a boy's worst friend: the blue whale. Kirkus, in a starred review, calls it "definitely funny and slyly subversive." You can go buy it at your local bookstore, or order it online by clicking here.
