Crazy story about Growing Up Pedro... apparently several thousand copies were stuck on a ship off the coast of Los Angeles for over a month, unable to dock due to an ongoing labor dispute at the port. Candlewick is on top of the situation, and I've been told that the books finally did make it to shore, and are currently traveling by train to the warehouse in Indiana. Once they're there, they will be immediately (hopefully) shipped out to stores.
for those of you who have been asking why you can't seem to find a copy
anywhere even though the book came out last week, that's why. I had no
idea about this until after the release date. It's frustrating, and it's a bummer that the
books weren't here on time, but the good news is they will be here soon.
Should be any day now...
