About me: "Well, I work at the most succulent plum of children's branches in New York City. The Children's Center at 42nd Street not only exists in the main branch (the one with the big stone lions out front) but we've a colorful assortment of children's authors and illustrators that stop on by. I'm a lucky fish. By the way, my opinions are entirely my own and don't represent NYPL's in the least. Got blame? Gimme gimme gimme!"

1. Name This Boy Band

At approximately 9:22 EST on Friday, July 27th I sent the following Tweet to the interwebs:

These are the kinds of serious thoughts that course through my brain on a given morning.  I might hear a One Direction song (yes, I’m a 34-year-old mother, what of it?) and think “That song could be a lot better if it just had some children’s authors involved.”

So I tweeted.  And to my infinite joy the tweets blossomed and bloomed to the point where we now have a serious task before us, people.  Namely, name this boy band.

The members would include Tom Angleberger (the shy one), Mac Barnett (the dreamy one – evidence here), Michael Buckley (the big brother), Tony DiTerlizzi (the one who understands you), Jarrett Krosoczka (the street smart one), and Dan Santat (the goofy one <— Jarrett’s suggestion).

Names that have been bandied about include (but are not limited to): D-Zine, Vizual Literacy, Reluctant Readerz, 32Pagez (my personal favorite), The Endpaperz, The Krosoczka Effect, the Origami Lunch Ladies and their Sidekick Dan, The Spine Tinglers, Cloth Overboardz, The Flappet Jacks (but only if it’s a jam band).  Surely there are more named to be had here.  Let’s have a redo of the time I asked you for good roller derby names.  Boy band names . . . GO!

After all, where were you the last time you heard the pop hits:

  • U Don’t Need a Newbery (To Know I Luv U) – Suggested by T.S. Ferguson
  • Rad Bladz
  • Advance Praise
  • Blurb Me – All three suggested by Alison Fargis
  • OH NO! I did it again - Suggested by Mike Boldt
  • Edit Me Badd – Suggested by Cece Bell

These would all be from the album “Wordz+Picturez” (as suggested by Jarrett).

And yes, I’ll talk about the opening ceremonies at the Olympics yesterday soon.  I just need to process it is all.  So many Mary Poppins . . . . so many . . . .
