Cover Love- The Accidental Hero by Matt Myklusch

One of my top 10 favorite MG reads last year was Matt Myklusch's Jack Blank and The Imagine Nation. You can read my 5 star review for the book here. I really liked the cover for book, but when I visited the Simon and Schuster booth at TLA, I was told the book received a make over with a new cover and title. Let me say, this is an awesome new cover!

If you're looking for a fantastic series/book to get any young boy (and girl), I highly recommend picking this book up!! I'm looking forward to the release of it's sequel, The Secret War when it's out in August.

You can purchase The Accidental Hero and pre order The Secret War here at Barnes & Noble. Don't forget to visit the Jack Blank site for more information on both books.


  1. I first looked into Jack Blank because of your original review and my students love it. I've ordered the next two books for the library!

  2. Hi Jennifer!! YAY!!! I'm so excited to hear that. It's my favorite series to recommend to boys! It's fabulous. I'm thinking of purchasing the set (when the sequel is out) to donate to my son's school library.

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
