I’m psyched to announceÂ The Secrets to Ruling School: Class Election!Â This book, of course, is the sequel to my first bookÂ The Secrets to Ruling School (Without Even Trying) and follows Max Corrigan as he helps you run for class president. ItÂ comes out September 13th, 2016â€”just in time for the nationalÂ election. Here’s the description from the publisher, Amulet Books:
Middle school expert Max Corrigan is back in the second book of this hilarious middle-grade series, and he wants YOU to run for class president. This book by comic artist Neil Swaab, which follows the hit first book,Â The Secrets to Ruling School, is a perfect read in advance of the 2016 elections and ideal for budding republicans, democrats, and independents.
The competition is fierce, but luckily, youâ€™ve got a killer campaign manager on your side. With Maxâ€™s help, youâ€™ll conquer all the steps of running for office and winning votes, including advertisements, endorsements, campaign speeches, and more. Along the way, youâ€™ll learn more essential skills for thriving in middle school, including making a viral video, trading your lunch in the school cafeteria, and putting a positive spin on any situation.
Neil Swaab once again combines comics, kid-friendly humor, and direct-address narrative perfect for reluctant readers in an innovative format reminiscent of video games that is â€śsure to hit the mark with middle schoolers in the trenchesâ€ť (Publishers Weekly) and with fans of the Big Nate and Terrible Two series.

The work consisted of a large poster to be hung in classrooms with a series of illustrations for accompanying worksheets. As an anti-smoker myself, I’m really happy I was able to work on this! You can see illustrations from the worksheets below. (more…)
