Yet another pseudo-celeb is on my $@#% list -- but in a funnier way than usual. My girls at Mean & Catty are reporting that everyone and his dog is publishing children's books. Seriously. I'd laugh, but then I'd have to laugh at everyone else crowding the field. I mean, it wasn't just Tookie, people. John GOTTI tried. Geez. Some of it is really worthwhile writing. But a lot of it...

As Jane Yolen was quoted as saying, "Celebrity children's books eat up all the available oxygen." I'm going to add to that, and say that oxygen deprivation usually leads to brain damage. The idea of the money that could be made is obviously blowing many editor's minds.
