Prestigous Awards:

Cheesie Mack Is Not a Genius or Anything, has been nominated for several awards, including Houston’s Horned Toad Tale Award, South Carolina Children’s Book Award, New Hampshire’s Great Stone Face Award, and The Bluestem Award: Illinois' Readers' Choice Award. Find out more about these wonderful honors.


Kind Words:

· Publishers Weekly: "Plenty entertaining..."
· School Library Journal: "The adventure of a lifetime. [A] rollicking read."
· "A clever, funny tale. The prefect book."
· "an enormously fun read: Cheesie is witty and his conversational voice and relationships ring true to middle school and all that that entails."

Your presentation was funny, interesting and engaging, which is more than enough all on its own. But I thank you for taking the time to teach your listeners, as well... Your talk fell right before we began our interpretive essay writing unit on character, and we have referred almost daily to your discussion about Cheesie and Georgie. We can't wait to read more of your books, and the time you spent at our school will continue to have a positive impact on our teaching and our students' learning.

Being Social:

Cheesie Mack is on Facebook, and Steve posts notable highlights from events, photos, and the occasional outtake from a particualrly fantastic letter from a kid. But most of his outreach time is focused on, where kids post comments all the time. Cheesie answers most of them, and in character of course.
