This is the book that you just HAD to know the ending to! The book that we all were CERTAIN would be the first in a series of very funny, very make-you-want-to-read-more-than-play detective stories about kooky fairy tale characters and their misadventures in Fairylandia. But guess what? This book is in trouble!
As you boys and girls know, I follow Bruce Hale on Twitter (your parents can, too - tell them to search for @storyguy1). Well, he tweeted the other day that Scholastic has NOT asked him to write more books for this series! Meaning, they haven't decided to make it into a series at all! Meaning, there won't be anymore written! AHHH!
We need to do something. This just can't happen to us. Don't the people at Scholastic know that there are readers all over the place just waiting and hoping to hear more from Wolfgang and Ferkel? Wait. They don't?
Ooooohhhhhh, the people at Scholastic don't know! They don't realize how much we loved this book. They don't realize how many sad kids there will be if they don't publish more of them!
Okay, then. We need to tell them! We need to let Scholastic know that we want more Big Bad! Here's how your parents can help you do that:
- Tweet about it. Include @scholastic and @storyguy1 in the tweet so that Scholastic will see it. Say something like: "I love Big Bad Detective Agency by @storyguy1! Please make it a series! @scholastic"
- Write a letter. Adults just LOVE getting mail from kids, trust me! If you put it in your own words and really put a lot of effort into convincing them, I bet they will listen to you. Here is the address: Scholastic Corporation, 557 Broadway, New York, NY 10012
- Call or email. Here is the customer service page from Scholastic's website. I don't know if they usually get requests like this, but they can at least tell you who to contact!
- If that doesn't work, try their On Our Minds blog. It's a blog all about books and the joy of reading. Sounds like what we are looking for, right? Here is a link to the contact page.
Share this post with as many people as you can. I'm posting it to Twitter, too. Hopefully we can get a LOT more readers to help us! With enough people asking for it, Scholastic will have to listen! Leave a comment below and tell me how it goes.
