OMG! Heard him speak recently, and he read two stories from this book - due out in October. I'm not a huge fan of his satire, preferring his autobiographical stuff rather, but these stories were certainly funny and crowd-pleasing. Ian Falconer, author of the Olivia children's books, will be doing the illustrations. Can't wait!!

Got this for Christmas, and Whoa! Liked it way better than I thought I would - much harsher and more caustic than anything he's done before. Like Aesop but much scarier and meaner. I'd read it again too just to enjoy his perfect command of everyday American speech. He is a national treasure.
