I’m thrilled to announce the forthcoming publication of my next book, Marvin’s Monster Diary 3: Trouble with Friends (But I Get By, Big Time), once again coauthored with Dr. Raun Melmed and illustrated by Arief Kriembonga.
Marvin’s Monster Diary 3
Trouble with Friends (But I Get By, Big Time)
SANGER, Calif., April 14, 2020—Readers fell in love with Marvin’s Monster Diary when they first met the lovable monster who battled a rambunctious case of ADHD and wild emotions, with a twelve-string guitar and a diary by his side. Marvin returns and is on a mission to help Joey, a lake monster with a loud mouth and few manners.
No one wants to be around the lake monster who cuts in line, talks over them, or tells them what he really thinks about their art project. But Joey secretly wants only one thing: friends.
In the same humorous spirit of Diary of a Wimpy Kid comes Marvin’s Monster Diary 3: Trouble with Friends (But I Get By, Big Time). Using the “monstercam” and ST4 techniques developed by Dr. Raun Melmed of the Melmed Center in Arizona, this book teaches kids how to be mindful, observe their surroundings, and take time to think—all wrapped up in a funny and action-packed story.
Marvin’s Monster Diary 3: Trouble with Friends (But I Get By, Big Time) includes a resource section to help parents and teachers implement Dr. Melmed’s methods, plus ST4 badge reminders that kids can remove, color, and place around the house. This is an important and engaging book for any reader who struggles with making and keeping friends.
Marvin’s hilarious doodles and diary entries chronicle his delightful adventures, misadventures, and eventual triumph in a funny, relatable way!
