Stepehn Colbert wants one. He made his demand last night after literally applauding “Newbery” for giving the award to a book in which, “…an 18-month-old escapes the murder of his family by stumbling ahead of an assassin into an old graveyard.” (From this new article.) Envy exuding from every pore, he then offered a children’s book title of his own, unprintable here. Editors, are you listening? Snap him up!
What a difference from two years ago when there was such a hue and cry about that poor dog’s scrotum. Sigh.
