Tommy Riles and Art Eddy talk about what they are passing down to their kids in the way of traditions and things that they like, such as making up songs and reading books. Then they bring on author, Tom Angleberger.
Tom Angleberger is the author of the bestselling Origami Yoda series, as well as Horton Halfpott and Fake Mustache, both Edgar Award nominees, the Qwikpick Papers series, and the Inspector Flytrap series. He lives in Virginia, with his wife, who is also an author and illustrator, Cece Bell and their two children.
In his new book Fuzzy, you follow the adventures of a girl named Max who is in middle school and becomes friends with a robot named Fuzzy. With the new Robot Integration Program, Max helps Fuzzy learn everything he needs to know about surviving middle school, the good, the bad, and the really, really, ugly. Little do they know that surviving sixth grade is going to become a true matter of life and death, because Vanguard has an evil presence at its heart: a digital student evaluation system named BARBARA that might be taking its mission to shape the perfect student to extremes.
