Matt Tavares signing books

When I visit your school, students, teachers, and staff can purchase my books directly from my publisher at a special 40% school discount! During my visit, I will sign and personalize all the books.

Here's how it works:

1. First, get in touch with Morgan DuBose at Candlewick Press, at, or by phone at (617) 588-4524. Dominique will provide you with an up-to-date list of what books are currently in stock, and she'll help guide you through the whole process.

2. Print this page of my book covers, and this order form (or make one like it), and fill in the blanks. 4 to 5 weeks before my visit, distribute forms to teachers, so students can take it home to their parents.

3. Everyone returns their flyers, with checks made out to your school or PTO. Now you know how many books to order.

Please place your order 3 or 4 weeks prior to my visit.

On the day of my visit, we will set aside 30-45 minutes for me to sign all the books. If I don't get to all of the books during the school day, I'll stay after school until they're all signed.

Or as an alternative: Instead of ordering books from the publisher, some schools opt to order books through a local bookstore, which seems to work out great for everyone because a) it's less work for you, and b) it helps local business. If you choose to go that route, I'm happy to provide an order form for the store to use.

Helpful tip: It is a huge help to have a post-it note on the front of each book with the recipient's name clearly written, so I can quickly know just how to personalize each one.

Note: My flyer lists all book prices at their discounted price. If you choose, you can charge more and use the book sale as a fund raiser. I'm happy to email you a word document of the order form, which you can edit however you like.
