This week’s guest is Artie Bennett. Despite the titles of his books, like Poopendous!, Belches, Burps, and Farts-Oh My!, The Butt Book, and Peter Panda Melts Down, Artie is a true lover of words. He was a prodigy as a child. A word prodigy. How does that reveal itself in a child that grows up to be a writer? He becomes a crossword puzzle creator. He’s a punster and a rhyming champ.
Artie and I talk about

  • Artie’s obscure but fascinating claim to fame (every writer should have this talent).
  • How he told Abe Minzer, his best friend about getting his first NY Times Crossword puzzle printed.
  • Artie’s scientific scatological interests leading to bestsellers!

    My words (and please forgive, as english is not my mother tongue – this are some german words for farts 🙂 )
    I had so much fun, hearing this Podcast, thanks for making it!
    Especially since i stopped my book for 8-10 yr olds some months ago, as i found the idea stupid. You showed me that my guts where right and i have to get back on it and finish it. Thanks for that!
