On the NY Times’ Paper Cuts blog, Lela Moore recently conducted an interview with Robbi Behr and Matthew Swanson, who run Idiots’ Books out of the barn they live in with their two children. Behr, an illustrator, and Swanson, a writer, have been contracted by LB Kids, the Young Readers division of Little, Brown, to create an installment of the Marvel Super Hero Squad.
Even if you don’t feel like reading the interview, just take a look at the Idiots’ Books blog. I highly recommend reading The Toast at the End of the Tunnel. Or simply scroll through the stories and photos, and relish in the thought of how wonderful it is when genuine, modest people are recognized for their efforts.
