On Saturday, June 23, and Sunday, June 24, while attending the American Library Association’s Annual Conference in Anaheim, CA, I ran around to as many of my favorite kids comics creators as I could and asked them all the exact same questions.

I’d always expected to run into Jen Wang eventually. I mean, she lives in the Bay Area, right? Everyone runs into everyone eventually in the Bay Area. It’s the way things work here. Except, yeah. Jen doesn’t live in the Bay Area anymore. So I ended up having to wait until ALA went to Southern California. Because everyone runs into everyone eventually at ALA.
Jen’s book Koko Be Good is a quirky, funny, literary charmer. Please take a look at our video interview:
