Stephen Colbert and Maurice Sendak Together At Last

Last year, after noticing the Today Show had decided to break their tradition of interviewing the Newbery and Caldecott winners the day after they won, I suggested that Stephen Colbert do it instead.  While it didn’t happen last year or this year (and I know for a fact that this year’s Newbery winner Jack Gantos could easily match Colbert, crazy comment for crazy comment), they did something arguably more awesome: they got Colbert interviewing “Mo” (as he calls him at one point) Maurice Sendak.

And so if you want to see one of the best octogenarians ever interviewed by Stephen Colbert, much no-holds-barred talk about children’s books, Colbert’s effort to write a children’s book, and so much more greatness go see “Grim Colberty Tales” Part 1 and Part 2 now, now, now.
