If you spend any significant amount of time with me I will inevitably ask you four questions:

1.    Do these jeans make my ass look fat.
2.    Do you really think I'll die alone?
3.    I seriously think these jeans shrunk in the wash…you're sure I don't look husky?
4.    Have you read any Dave Yoo?

Dave Yoo is this guy:

His new book, "Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before" came out a few months ago, and it's good.  Really, really good.

Dave Yoo is my favorite writer in young adult literature, and I think you'll like him, too.

So, the next time you're in the bookstore, I want you pick up "Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before" and read the first five pages.  If you don't either:

A)    Laugh


B)    Feel something genuine

Well then, you're clearly incapable of human emotion, and I just feel sorry for you, tin man.

But for those out there who can experience joy and the full spectrum of human emotion, I suggest that you read Dave's new book.  The Amazon link is here.

Still not convinced?  Okay, why don't you spend a little time on his website?  www.daveyoo.com.  I recommend the blog.  It's awesome. 

Also, his sister is talented YA novelist, ("Good Enough") former West Wing writer, and occasional reality TV actor Paula Yoo (www.paulayoo.com).  So, there's clearly something very right in the Yoo's genetic code.

Go check out the Yoo siblings.  You will love their books.

THANK YOU for saying such nice things about my bro! Thank you for your kind words, too. I love your wacky blog. I think I'm too uptight and generically boring in my blog. There's a side of me that just wants to blog about my favorite video games too instead of trying to be all teacher-ish about children's writing etc. Do you like Katamari on Playstation? That game is hysterical. I hear they are now using it to help cure OCD patients. Must go make a new star now...

The negotiators appeared to be having a hard time defining what kind of cuts would occur at the end of the year 2012 if Congress failed to act on the committee’s recommendations.
