KidLit TV: Not Bird, Nor Plane, Nor Even Frog Just L’il Ole Me
This falls directly into the category of “Me Stuff”. That said, some of you may be aware of the presence of Kidlit TV out there. Just to recap, it’s the closest thing we have right now to an all-children’s literature related blog channel. The brainchild of Julie Gribble with host Rocco Staino and a whole crew of fellow staff members, I’ve been watching the consistently interesting and intelligent fare over the last few months. And now? Now they’re talking to me. I am with the gabby gab, as they say. So much so that they couldn’t fit everything into a single video. This week is part one. Next week we’ll be seeing part two.
Primarily I’m discussing the book I co-wrote with Jules Danielson and Peter Sieruta, Wild Things: Acts of Mischief in Children’s Literature. Don’t have a copy of your own? Well, you’re in luck. A giveaway is at hand and you could get yourself a free one. Just go here to see me yammer and to win.
Many thanks to Julie, Rocco, and the whole crew (including the make-up artist who hid very well her horror at my inability to understand the most rudimentary aspects of eyeliner). Enjoy!
Fascinating to see what I look like with make-up on, isn’t it?
