More About the Author

Peter Mandel (http://www.petermandel.net) is an adventure travel journalist for The Washington Post, The Boston Globe and others, and the author of ten children's books. Mandel's books have come out from Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, HarperCollins, Penguin, Scholastic, Henry Holt, and Hyperion, and have been featured in USA Today, and on ABC's "The Home Show." His titles have been part of exhibits at the Museum of Natural History in New York, at the Smithsonian, and at the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and have been translated into Japanese, Chinese, German, Italian, Dutch, Swedish and Danish. Mandel's work is syndicated through Featurewell.com. He lives in Rhode Island with his wife, Kathy, and cats, Sam and Betty. Mandel grew up in Manhattan and graduated from Middlebury College and Brown University.

Mandel's newest picture books for kids include ZOO AH-CHOOOO from Holiday House, a PBS Reading Rainbow selection illustrated by Elwood Smith, and JACKHAMMER SAM from Macmillan/Roaring Brook, illustrated by David Catrow. "If a new Walt Whitman broke up sidewalks with a jackhammer," said The Chicago Tribune, "this is exactly what his 'Song of Myself' would be." "Like New York City itself," said Publishers Weekly, "Sam is wonderful and overwhelming, rattling and mesmerizing." BUN, ONION, BURGER was published by Simon & Schuster in 2010 and named a Summer 2010 Children's INDIE NEXT PICK by the American Booksellers Association.

His other recent kids' books include PLANES AT THE AIRPORT and BOATS ON THE RIVER, both from Scholastic. The Boston Globe calls them "a great way to introduce the idea of travel in simple terms." The Dallas Morning News lauds the books for "informing and calming very young travelers" and School Library Journal says that "spare phrases combined with bold graphic illustrations will entice busy toddlers" and that "a singsong text suitable for reading aloud makes these titles entertaining choices." Other positive reviews of PLANES AT THE AIRPORT and BOATS ON THE RIVER have appeared in Publishers Weekly and Booklist.

Another picture book, SAY HEY! A SONG OF WILLIE MAYS, came out from Hyperion Books for Children in March of 2001 and was named a Boston Globe "Quick Pick" for children, a Child magazine recommended title, a San Francisco Examiner "Bay City Best" and a featured book in USA Today's Sports Weekly. SAY HEY! is one of six titles selected for the newly published JUMP AT THE SUN TREASURY OF AFRICAN AMERICAN PICTURE BOOKS and is featured in the "Baseball as America" exhibit curated by the National Baseball Hall of Fame and currently at the Museum of Natural History in New York.

His chapter book for children is MY OCEAN LINER: ACROSS THE NORTH ATLANTIC ON THE GREAT SHIP NORMANDIE from Stemmer House, which Publishers Weekly called "a voyage in grand style" and which was featured on a special family sailing on Cunard's QE2. RED CAT, WHITE CAT, another children's book, came out in 1995 from Henry Holt & Co. and was an American Bookseller "Pick of the Lists," a Kirkus Reviews "Best of the Issue," and a Working Mother magazine recommended book. In 1991, HarperCollins published his humorous book, THE OFFICIAL CAT I.Q. TEST. His more recent books include THE CAT DICTIONARY (Penguin) and THE OFFICIAL DOG I.Q. TEST (Bonus Books).

A contributing author of the best-selling collection, CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE CAT & DOG LOVER'S SOUL, Mandel has published his articles and essays in Harper's, The Wall Street Journal, Reader's Digest, The Los Angeles Times, The International Herald Tribune, Budget Travel and The Chicago Tribune, and is a regular contributor to the travel sections of The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, and National Geographic 'Kids.' One of his Boston Globe articles won the 2005 Lowell Thomas gold award from the Society of American Travel Writers for adventure travel article of the year. Other articles, for The Washington Post and the Baltimore Sun, won Lowell Thomas Awards in 2003, 2006 and 2007. One of his essays is included in the new anthology of travel humor published by Travelers' Tales: "What Color is Your Jockstrap? Funny Men and Women Write from the Road."

Mandel has written about destinations abroad such as Bangkok, Florence, Glasgow, northern Hudson Bay, the African desert, Antarctica, and the southern tip of Chile and Argentina. He also writes about unusual adventures including kayaking in New York harbor, watching polar bears and penguins in the wild, trekking in the tropical jungle, hiking a suburban strip mall, suiting up as a theme park character, and seeing America by metered cab. He likes baseball, ocean liners, Chinese food, and checking out just about any place he hasn't been.

Format: Hardcover
Peter Mandel And Chris Eliopoulos have matched the spirit of the season with the imagination of the new reader in Bun, Onion, Burger. Using a perfect balance of colorful, retro illustration with limited text, the story is very readable and encourages imaginative questions. By using a single word in place of the often longer phrase the young reader gains confidence and is encouraged to re-read this fun book. A great gift idea when you are invited to the next summer BBQ, and on my grandchildren gift list !

I purchased this book for one of my friend's sons and he loved the illustrations and the story. His Dad likes to grill so it was as if he was following along as his Dad cooked. It was cute to watch him read it and understand the rhymes as he went along. Anything that gets kids to read is an A+ in my book.

Format: Hardcover
Now that summer is here, my kids (ages 5 and 3) insist that we cook burgers and dogs on the grill at least twice a week. When I saw Bun, Onion, Burger, I knew they'd love it -- and they do. My wife reads it to them while I man the grill, and then they insist we read it again at bedtime. And I think this book is the reason why we're now grilling 3 or more times a week. It may not be great for my cholesterol, but the kids really do love it.

Format: Hardcover
Bun, Onion, Burger by Middlebury grad Peter Mandel is a wonderful, lighthearted book suitable for the pre-reader to the begining reader. His easy, yet compelling story draws youngsters into the madcap world of Bun, Onion, Burger. The delightful, fifties inspired graphics, featuring a picnic in the park, seamlessly complement Mandel's fine, expressivre and accessible prose. Its a tasty treat-Highly Reommendad

Format: Hardcover
My daughter loves this book. The illustrations are so colorful and the story is simple enough that she is able to make up her own stories to go along with the words given on the page.
I highly recommended this book to other parents who want to help expand their child's imagination.
My only criticism is the black spot over the dog's right eye often gets mistaken for his cheek.
