Tara Lazar

Author of "The Monstore"

From the very first page of Mister Cool I giggled, chortled, and may have even snort laughed. And the last page? A big “Awww!” bubbled up and spilled out. Mister Cool is cooler than cool and I want to be like him when I grow up.

Author of "My Heart and Other Black Holes"

Unique, unexpected, and always charming, Mister Cool doesn’t hide his idiosyncrasies. This fresh look on celebrating our own individuality will certainly resonate with children who may sometimes feel like they are on the outside looking in — which is to say, all children, and likely some adults as well!
