Hi Tara! Congrats on the release ofThe Upper Case: Trouble in Capital City I love the witty wordplay in this book and how it encourages kids to think about letters in creative ways. This clever story is the perfect companion to 7 Ate 9.
Becoming obsolete or becoming more and more important?
(I assume you mean capitals, unless this is a political interview...)
MORE IMPORTANT NOW THAN EVER!
For the parents or for the kids?
A-ok or wordy?
A-OK in my book!
Tough or Easy?
Easy as pi.
On Private I’s:
Necessary or extraneous?
On Film Noirs:
Watch them or avoid them?
Watch them all! Start with "Double Indemnity!"
Frustrating or Intriguing?
On being in the movies:
Worth being kidnapped for or overrated?
The Upper Case or The Upper Case?
Definitely not the lower case!
Review by Kirsti Call "Luckily the Quotation Twins were willing were willing to talk.
'Yeah, something's definitely up, besides us,' they said. 'But don't quote us on that.'"
I love all of Tara Lazar's quirky, clever books. This book is the perfect companion
to 7 ate 9. The story is fast paced, and every spread has multiple puns, idioms, and
witty wordplay. The film noir illustrations enhance the already super fun storyline.
This is the kind of story that you'll want to re-read for a rollicking ride and a chuckle.
Street magic performer. Hog-calling champion.
Award-winning ice sculptor. These are all things Tara
Lazar has never been. Instead, she writes quirky,
humorous picture books where anything is possible.
