Ladies and gentlemen, I just listened to two of the most hilarious interviews with children’s authors ever in the world.
Please, if you know what’s good for you, watch:
Maurice Sendak on the Colbert Report
and then listen to:
Jack Gantos on Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me.
Hilarious interviews ~ both of them. I’ve never been a fan of Maurice Sendak’s work, but his interview with Colbert was so dang funny.
I actually caught Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me on Sunday. I thought they were kidding about Gantos having been in prison. Boy was I surprised. Clever show/clever interview.

MsParenthetical Who knows books better than authors? Booksellers, maybe, but the authors gave it a good try on #SmallBusinessSat ! http://t.co/yR1d3pDJjq
MsParenthetical I would buy so many books if they were delivered by O.W.L.S. ("working individually or as an adorable team")! http://t.co/6lmwCdtOXW
MsParenthetical Phones are seductively distracting; it is ok (necessary) to teach kids when to put 'em away. http://t.co/jr0aTUxp2G
MsParenthetical Yup, guilty, especially of talking to adults as though they're 7th graders. Don't Date a Girl Who Teaches http://t.co/zdA8rWS7vm
MsParenthetical Approximately 13 previews before Catching Fire last night, and only one wasn't based on a book or other property. I miss originality.

MsParenthetical That GoldieBlox ad that's everywhere? The toy's theme is a (not subverted) princess pageant. So over you, princesses. http://t.co/XkOsa7tpPw
