On tonight’s Thursday Night Special, it’s the season for spooky on episode two of Kid Lit with Lisa Loeb! We meet a scuba diving cat, an agent from the Creepy Intelligence Agency, an Extraterrestrial named Ethel, and face questions that rate you from normal to one-of-a-kind weird… which turns out is pretty normal, too!
Three in-depth interviews with the authors and editors from National Geographic Kids anchor the show: Robin Terry (“Ultimate Weird but True 2″), Becky Baines (“That’s Creepy!”) and author Mark Shulman (“Are You Normal? 2″.)
- Children’s Literature expert Emma Dryden gives us the scoop on the newest age category: “New Adult.”
- We explore costumes inspired by children’s stories.
- And our diversity spotlight shines on a book that breaks as many stereotypes as it spoofs.
All in all, it’s an episode that plumbs the creepiest, scariest non-fiction to entertain, inform, and get listeners to believe that it really is CREEPY, WACKY… AND TRUE!
