Stephen Colbert is writing a children’s book

One of the best interviews in recent memory is Stephen Colbert’s brief encounter with the lovable, if slightly cantankerous, children’s author Maurice Sendak (Where The Wild Things Are). If you missed it, do your patriotic duty and watch part one and part two before continuing onward.

Done? Okay. It seems that fans dug Colbert’s ostensibly fake book idea, I Am Pole (And So Can You), so much that they’ll actually be publishing it on May 8. Even Sendak had some kind things to say about the project: while it’s “terribly ordinary,” he said, “the sad thing is I like it.”

I can’t think of any book I’d rather read. Thanks, Stephen, for your commitment to literature and moral uplift.
