To Me, My X-Men!

Hey, guess what? I wrote a children’s book titled The X-Men Little Golden Book! It was illustrated by Shane Clester, and it will be published by Penguin Random House on May 7, 2024.

This book is an adaptation of X-Men: The Animated Series, the beloved TV show from the 1990s. Here’s the official publisher description of the book:

Inspired by the 1990’s animated series , Marvel’s mightiest mutants—the X-Men—arrive to save the day in their first ever Little Golden Book! Perfect for kids 2 to 5 as well as collectors and fans of all ages.

Born with amazing mutant abilities and trained by Dr. Charles Xavier, the X-men stand ready to defend the world even though that world doesn’t always trust them. These action-packed full-color pages will introduce Wolverine, Rogue, Storm, Cyclops and the other mutants on their team as well as their friends and foes. Kids 2 to 5—along with Marvel fan and collectors—will love this Little Golden Book based on X-Men: The Animated Series.

Oh, also, The X-Men LGB marks the third time I’ve worked with the incredible Shane Clester. The first project we collaborated on was an Avengers Little Golden Book titled The Threat of Thanos, which came out in 2018 from Penguin Random House.

And our second collaboration was a Spidey and His Amazing Friends board book titled The Great Food Truck Caper, which came out in 2023.

As always, it was wonderful working with Shane on The X-Men LGB, and I can’t wait for all of you to see how that book turned out!
