The Year of the Fat Kid Begins!
January 25th, 2022–Matt’s highly anticipated follow-up to his debut middle-grade novel, BUMP, has finally been released! THE SUPERVILLAIN’S GUIDE TO BEING A FAT KID is available in hardcover everywhere you buy books! You can also get it for most ereaders and as a wonderfully produced audiobook read by Mark Sanderlin and available from Harper Audio.
THE SUPERVILLAIN’S GUIDE TO BEING A FAT KID has already been chosen as a Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Selection for 2022. Matt’s deeply personal, surprisingly funny, and stereotype-smashing novel of body positivity, bullying, and acceptance has received praise from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, Teen Librarian Toolbox, and YA Books Central, among others, as well as being named a must-read children’s release by Book Riot. Julie Murphy, #1 New York Times best-selling author of DUMPLIN’, calls it, “A funny and heartfelt underdog tale I couldn’t put down!”
It is Matt’s hope that every kid, especially fat kids like he was, have the opportunity to read and learn from this story. You can help make that happen by reviewing SVG online, talking about it on your social media, and helping to place it in classrooms and libraries everywhere.
