He is also the co-author (with James Patterson) of the #1 Bestsellers I Funny\, House of Robots\, Treasure Hunters\, Jacky Ha-Ha\, Word of Mouse\, Pottymouth and Stoopid\, and many others. \nWinner of the Agatha Award and the Anthony Award\, Grabenstein’s writing is at once fast-paced\, page-turning\, warm and incredibly funny. His books have been praised for “celebrating teamwork\, perseverance and clever wits\,” “delivering the sound message of the power and delight of the written word” and reminding readers that “kindness pays.” His new book\, The Smartest Kid in the Universe (due out December 1)\, begins a brand new series – “a humorous love letter to public education and dedicated teachers” (Publishers Weekly)\, “packed with wacky high jinks” (Booklist).  When 12-year-old Jake McQuade accidentally ingests some magic genius jellybeans\, he becomes the smartest kid in the universe\, with government officials and mega-corporations hot on his trail. Can he figure out how to use his smarts in time to save his middle school? Can he navigate all the ins and outs of newfound geniusdom—not to mention the ins and outs of 7th grade? As James Patterson says\, “Chris Grabenstein just might be the smartest writer for kids in the universe\,” but this is a book that reminds readers: even the smartest kids have a lot to learn. \nIn addition to his work as an author\, Grabenstein is also a playwright and screenwriter\, a former advertising executive and an improvisational comedian. He is a graduate of the University of  Tennessee. He and his wife\, J.J. Grabenstein\, live in New York City with their cats Luigi and Phoebe Squeak and “lots and lots of ideas.” \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n URL:http://inprinthouston.org/event/inprint-cool-brains-chris-grabenstein-live-stream-event/ CATEGORIES:Cool Brains!
