I’m thrilled to announce that I have launched a merchandise store on Teespring for T-shirts, mugs, and more themed after my books! Show off to all of your friends with a cool T-shirt of Alvin floating to the Land without Color under his gum bubble. Or jump into action with T-shirt of the Sugar Soldiers or Spider Riders. Snuggle up with an adorable pillow of Alvin eating ice cream.
