Tommy Nelson to Revitalize Classic Series

The Incredible Worlds of Wally McDoogle to Rerelease with Illustrations

Nashville, Tenn. – Wally McDoogle is back. And this time, his high jinks have a twenty-first century twist.

Releasing September 2019, My Life as a Smashed Burrito with Extra Hot Sauce (The Incredible Worlds of Wally McDoogle #1, 9780785231127) and My Life as Alien Monster Bait (The Incredible Worlds of Wally McDoogle #2, 9780785231141) will again engage readers young and old with funny stories and important truths. Authored by Bill Myers, this timeless series will engage young readers today as much as it did 30 years ago.

“Bill Myers is a master at helping kids navigate the perils of growing up – while being hilarious,” says Laura Minchew, senior vice president and publisher for Tommy Nelson Children’s Books. “This is one of the few books guaranteed to make kids laugh out loud!” Now with fresh covers, line art throughout the text, and updated cultural references, young readers have a new opportunity to join Wally on his zany adventures.

Tommy Nelson plans to release the first six Wally McDoogle books in this new format, with audio editions narrated by the author. Future releases will include My Life as a Broken Bungee Cord and My Life as Crocodile Junk Food in January 2020 and My Life as Dinosaur Dental Floss and My Life as a Torpedo Test Target in June 2020.

Bill Myers is the author of the humorously imaginative The Incredible Worlds of Wally McDoogle series, which currently numbers 25 episodes and over 1.8 million units sold. Bill’s latest works include the creation of a brand-new secret agent series for early readers, Secret Agent Dingledorf. He is also the creator and writer of the McGee & Me! video series. Bill is a director as well as a writer, and his films have won over forty national and international awards. He has written more than 50 books for kids, teens, and adults. Bill lives with his wife and two daughters in southern California.

Bill Myers is available for interview.
