In Holland, Be More Chill has released by The House of Books as "De chill Pil."

No Amsterdam book tour is planned, but I'm headed over there for a wedding in 2006.

In Israel, Be More Chill has been published in Hebrew by Matar Publishing.

Tthis should clear things up for the person from Israel who emailed me asking if his squip would speak to him in English or Hebrew.
Be More Chill - Indonesian

I've had a lot of love from Oceania. The Random House version of Teen Angst? Naaah... made its way to the Philippines in 2002; the US hardcover Be More Chill is available there currently. In 2006, this Indonesian Be More Chill was released with its festive and interesting cover.

The people from the Philippines who have read my books have been incredibly supportive. Thank you so much, guys. Among other things, a Filipino student named Miguel Michael Barnes translated the first part of Teen Angst? Naaah... into Tagalog, the indigenous Filipino language.
