Jon Scieszka on NPR

In one chapter, Scieszka writes about his own experience as a young reader encountering the “strange alien family” of Dick and Jane and wondering why the characters repeated each other’s names so frequently.

“If Jane didn’t see the dog, Dick would say, ‘Look Jane, look. There is the dog next to Sally, Jane,’ ” Scieszka says. “I thought they were afraid they might forget each other’s names, because they always said each other’s names — a lot.”
