This week, we welcome Nick Bruel, author and illustrator of New York Times bestseller Boing! and the Bad Kitty books.
 
Nick has created some brilliantly subversive – and hilarious – characters. On the Social, he and Laura had an extensive and fascinating discussion about his process and his tips for writers looking to give their kidlit characters a little extra edge.
 
Laura also checks in with publishing links, and we celebrate the successes of some Children’s Book Insider subscribers. And our poll question this week: What’s your favorite funny book?
