Despereaux Measures
Posted by: Daniel Kraus

I had a ball chatting with Ingrid Law, and Gillian Engberg seemed thrilled to be talking to Ann Brashares, but for sheer frequency of giggling frivolity, it looks like Ilene Cooper has us beat. She had a pow-wow recently with author Kate DiCamillo and before it’s over they both sound like they’re about to hyperventilate from laughter.

What’s so funny? You’ll have to watch and see, but I will say that DiCamillo talks extensively about the surreal experience of seeing her book The Tale of Despereaux turned into a major motion picture, as well as the somewhat quieter process of doing the same with Because of Winn-Dixie. Then the hilarity (joy buzzers? whoopee cushions?) begins.
