Skinny Dip with John Coy

7_15HoopWhat ani­mal are you most like?

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.

    Walk­ing home for lunch was a great expe­ri­ence, and I’m sor­ry kids don’t get to do that any more. I loved hav­ing “Lunch with Casey” every day! And I bet “Crack­back!” would make a good movie, too!
