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 @Alcibiades39 is my hero. Every sentence of "things teachers are sick of hearing from reformers" gets a HELL YES. http://t.co/SBSe4vGTha
MsParenthetical Upshot of this important new rept. on school discipline in MA: it's inconsistent and harshest on kids of color. http://t.co/7WL0mxCljR
MsParenthetical @145lewis @KateMilford Oh yeah, on to advisee #2 for the weekend, and I know who needs it next. This one's going to make the rounds.
MsParenthetical Watched my student finish Greenglass House and freak out from across study hall. Like a dramatic silent film. @KateMilford @145lewis
MsParenthetical I never considered who created @chooseadventure . It was just always there, killing me in horrible ways. RIP, sir. http://t.co/MoP9Ws5o6s
MsParenthetical @AaronStarmer Excellent point, sir!
MsParenthetical Got my ARC of Whisper! (With my quote in the pub materials!) Told my student I get to read it first. #worstteacher @AaronStarmer
