Crazy Luke on FBI's most-wanted list

For those of you who are new to the Jack and Noah series, Crazy Luke is a four-year-old neighbor who tends to cause a lot of trouble -- like getting-thrown-in-jail-kind-of trouble.  This character is very loosely based on my neighbor and godson Luke, who was four years old when I started writing 'Jack and Noah's Big Day.'  Crazy Luke is most often cited as readers' favorite character, but he almost wasn't in the book.  He wasn't even mentioned in the first draft of 'Big Day,' but my editor told me how important it was to have failures and disasters in children's books.  Crazy Luke came to life during that second draft, and he's got even more tricks up his sleeve in 'Jack and Noah's Big Election.'  Who knew he'd be such a popular villain?
