A New Blog and a New Book!

It's here! It's here!

And what better way
to celebrate than having cake and doing a dance?

By starting a blog, of course!

Welcome to my new blog. My name is Andrea Beaty and I'm a children's author and one of the fabulous Three Silly Chicks. (Hint: I'm the one in pink glasses.)

At Three Silly Chicks, we review funny books for kids, interview people who make us laugh, and do the cha-cha with bowls of bean dip on our feathery heads.

I will not be engaging in that sort of bean dip behavior at this blog. It's undignified. Plus it gets your
feathers sticky. Besides, I'm out of bean dip. However, I might be compelled to do the tango or the hustle if a great bowl of salsa comes by.

I hope you'll drop by from time to time and join me to learn what's going on with my books and with me!

But enough about me.
What do you think about me?


I am so excited!

My second book, IGGY PECK, ARCHITECT is out! In fact, I've heard of a couple of sightings of it in the wild. Which looks a lot like this:

With cheap binoculars, it looks a lot like this:

In a picture, it looks a lot like this:

IGGY PECK, ARCHITECT is a fun book about a boy named Iggy who is born to build. He wants to build all the time and doesn't care what materials are available. He makes them ALL work--including food, mud, and diapers. (Dirty ones!)

David Roberts illustrated IGGY PECK, ARCHITECT with a fun, funky retro style that is spare and yet full of cool images. Each time I read the book, I find something new and funny in the art!

I hope you'll check out Iggy! You can see some sample pages over at my website:

In the coming weeks, I'll be adding lots of new items to my website for Iggy fans, including teacher guides and items for booksellers! I'll post here on the blog when that happens!

Thanks for visiting today! I hope you'll come back again soon!

All my best,

Andrea Beaty
