Andy Also!

by Maxwell Eaton III

Two Andys? Twice the Fun!


Andy and Preston are back for a brand-new nutty adventure—only this time there are two of them! Well, not two Prestons. Because Preston has decided that from now on, he is also going to be called Andy. Guess who doesn’t like this, AT ALL? As Andy tries to convince Andy that he should be the only Andy, the buddies share noisy fun, talk about rabbits, and the confusing arrival of… Dr. Turkeyfeet?

A First Chapter Book Series for Independent Readers

Welcome to a new series created to bridge the gap between read-to-me books and read-on-my-own books!

Harriet Ziefert, Blue Apple’s publisher and founder, was among the pioneers in creating early readers that help kids transition into becoming independent and successful readers. A crucial step in this process is to offer books with more pages and more plot, while retaining a spare word count and text style.

Enter Jump Into Chapters, a new series of books created to transition readers from picture books to text-heavy chapter books. The first three books in the series have between 72 and 96 pages, but very few words per page. In short, the page count increases, while the word count remains low. These books are designed to fill an important gap in reading materials.

It’s important to have books that challenge the new reader to remember what happened eighty pages or more after he/she began. Best of all, each of the books features fresh-and-funny, character-driven stories. Kids will feel like they’ve made some great new friends who reflect their lives and feelings.
