Book Hour - Michael Ian Black

On today's show, Mindy interviewed Michael Ian Black, author of Chicken Cheeks. He is an author, comedian, actor, father, son, uncle, grocery shopper. Michael doing the interview from NYC. This is the first book for kids that he has written, and he has two more coming out. One is about a purple kangaroo and a mind reading monkey. The other is "A Pig Parade is a Terrible Idea," being published by Simon-Schuster.

The book is about animal tushies!?! His kids don't get credit for helping, then they don't get royalties. The book is supposed to be very funny, not a veterinary book. Some of the phrases are "Deer Rear", "Moose caboose", "Duck-billed platypus gluteus maximus.

The illustrations are great. There is a story to the book, all the animals are standing on top of each other.

Michael was a wild and loud little boy. He rode down the stairs in a laundry basket. His kids are their own best people.
