I have a strong love for the Graywolf.
Which book of yours was the most difficult to write or illustrate?
All the ones that have not yet found a publisher.
Which of your books would make a good movie and who would be the star?
Lots of students think Crackback would. I’d be happy with any star.
What’s your favorite line from a book?
“Go, Dog. Go!”
What book do you tell everyone to read?
The Watson go to Birmingham—1963
Are you a night owl or an early bird?
I used to be a night owl. Now I’m much more of an early bird.
Were you most likely to visit the school office to deliver attendance/get supplies, visit the nurse, or meet with the principal?
I hardly ever visited the school office for any of these reasons. Our elementary school was so small we didn’t even have a regular nurse. We hardly ever saw the principal and we had no lunch at school. We all walked home every day for lunch. And the idea of being too cold to go outside for recess hadn’t been invented yet.
