There's A Book

At There’s A Book we do our interviews a little differently. All of our interviews are conducted by our very own Turkeybird! Perfect for a 4 year old, he asks all the authors we love his very own “20 Questions”. His interviews have been praised by many of the authors who’ve been on the receiving end including National Ambassador of Young People’s Literature Emeritus Jon Scieszka who said the interview was, “His favorite interview ever!”

Take a look and see if you don’t fall in love with some of the silliest author interviews ever!
