Al Yankovic - My New Teacher And Me - promo cover pic

“Weird Al” Yankovic will be doing a whirlwind 7-cities-in-7-days U.S. tour next month – only this time instead of the stage he’ll be hitting bookstores, signing copies of his brand new children’s book My New Teacher and Me!

This marks Al’s second foray into children’s literature, after his 2011 New York Times best-selling picture book When I Grow Up.

My New Teacher and Me! once again features Billy, a small boy with a big imagination. Mr. Booth is his new teacher – a serious man with a strict lesson plan. When the irresistible force of Billy’s unrestrained creativity meets the immovable object of Mr. Booth’s fixed worldview, one thing is obvious: someone is going to learn a lot this school year!

Al Yankovic will be in person in the following cities signing copies of his new book:
