NPR had a kidlit doubledose this morning with Jon Scieska promoting Knucklehead followed by Dave Barry doing Science Fair schtick. I assume you can find the audio on NPR.org. Maybe here:http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=97602352&ft=1&f=7
Scieska was charming and nice and so laid back and then they mention that he has sold 9 MILLION BOOKS! Great googly moogly!
The Dave Barry piece wasn’t so great, since he was doing the Diet Coke/Mentos explosion and lighting a t-shirt on fire .. on the radio. But he does drop some interesting tidbits about Science Fair.
I’m also a little disturbed that his book about a Science Fair stars a character named Toby Harbinger. While I have an unpublished MS with a lot of science fair in it starring a character named Toby Tuckliver. The resemblance probably ends there, but I can’t see it helping me get my ms published.
IMPORTANT NOTE NPR FORGOT TO MENTION: BEE-WIGGED BLOG TOUR STARTS MONDAY! RIGHT HERE!
