Video Wednesday: Nic Bishop and Spiders

Even though Sonja's got a crush on Nic Bishop, I got to sit next to him at the Newbery/Caldecott Awards dinner in California this summer. Boy, was she pea-green with envy!

Now everyone can see just how cool he is in this video from our friends at Scholastic Book Fairs. Bishop goes spider hunting in his backyard (with a HUGE net) and shows us how he snapped those wonderful (sometime gross) photos for his 2008 Sibert Honor-winning book Nic Bishop Spiders.

I know!! Isn't he the coolest? His bio says he lives in Michigan, but maybe Jessica has different information since she was talking to him for 3 hours at the Newbery/Caldecott banquet!!


It's so amazing to see how he captures his "subjects"! Where does he live, anyway?
