Home again, and this time for

6/3/09 — Home again, and this time for several weeks. Visits to Longview and Duvall, Washington both went great. One group of kids asked, "What’s next?" I told them about the sequel to ATTACK OF THE MUTANT UNDERWEAR. "What’s the title going to be?" they wanted to know. I said I was considering ATTACK OF THE MUTANT UNDERWEAR: TAKE TWO. A fifth grade boy said he understood the meaning of the title and the allusion to filmmaking, but suggested that a lot of kids wouldn’t. The class agreed, then voted that the best title would be REVENGE OF THE MUTANT UNDERWEAR. I concur. So there you have it — literary democracy in action!

My next school visit isn’t until mid September. I’m going to miss all of the kid contact.
