Video Wednesday - Teacher From the Black Lagoon

9780590419628_sm Author Mike Thaler paid us a visit not too long ago. We were thrilled at the opportunity to talk with this favorite author of more than 140 books. Wearing his favorite color -- yellow -- Thaler talked about writing riddles, where he got the idea for the Black Lagoon series, and what to tell kids who want to write. He also gave a mini-tutorial about how to write riddles. Best of all, he read from Teacher from the Black Lagoon. It was a real treat to hear the classroom classic read by its author.

Tune in and watch the full Mike Thaler interview here.
