Book Description:
What makes funny FUNNY? An esteemed anthologist interviews thirteen favorite children s authors and asks them to share their trade secrets.

DO YOU EVER MAKE YOURSELF LAUGH WHILE YOU ARE WRITING?

'A joke isn t a joke if you need to explain it,' notes Leonard S. Marcus. 'Even so, the hidden clockwork of comedy . . . has long been considered one of the great riddles of life.' There are many kinds of humor, but capturing their essence on paper is a remarkably difficult (and often undervalued) skill. So how do authors create books that not only stand the tests of time but also make us laugh? In thirteen fascinating interviews, well loved writers of humorous books for children discuss an array of topics, from their sources of inspiration to the ways they began writing, from their revision processes to childhood anecdotes to the value they place on comedy in their work and lives. Beautifully designed and thoughtfully edited, this collection is bound to tickle the fancy of children and adults alike.
