As any other Raschka or Radunsky book, they've found a way to take a simple concept and make it interesting. They ask kids why things only grow in one direction--toenails, for instance, and then they create this book that can be read several different ways. Read it one way and then flip the book around and read it the other for a different storyline.

Chris Raschka is one of those people who knew from an early age what he wanted to be when he grew up. "It was never a question in my mind,"
