(Candlewick, 2009)

Thirteen well-loved comic writers for young people tell how they found their funny bones, their voices, and themselves. Leonard talks with Judy Blume, Beverly Cleary, Sharon Creech, Christopher Paul Curtis, Anne Fine, Daniel Handler, Carl Hiaasen, Norton Juster, Dick King-Smith, Hilary McKay, Louis Sachar, and Jon Scieszka, with a not-to-be-missed cameo appearance by Daniel Pinkwater.
