Lewis and Clark in "The Bottle of Thunder" Part 1


Snappy title page, eh? My favorite since the Pinniped Party title page.

I'm sure some of you students of history out there know where this story is going, but don't spoil it. This has a funny twist ending like the isopod story. And, like the tongue eating isopod, the facts in this story are true.

I can't wait. Outside of NPR, I like to get my facts from potentially disturbing webcomics.

I was just telling my wife this morning how much I miss NPR playing in the background. In the age of iPods and Podcasts, she now listens to TOTN and Car Talk in her headphones. Not the same.

I want my background NPR back! Down with headphones!

Not to question your logical capabilities, but are you not capable of turning on your own radio?

Nathan said...

I work deep in the basement, poor reception. So the background noise has to come from upstairs. AI suppose I could turn the upstairs radio on.

Just when I was thinking you were relying on your wife to do all your mundane task for you: pick out your clothes, set-up playdates, wipe the spittle from your chin. As you toil in front of your demanding drawing board slaving to get the next webcomic to us.

BTW, I've been reading Yellowbelly at least two time a day this week, it really is the highlight of my day. PLUM, WHERE'S PLUM?

You, sir, are a nerd. That is the only way to explain "having a good story about Lewis and Clark."

Nate,

I just happened upon your blog via facebook and I can't wait to introduce my kids to it. We were able to read "Rapunzel's Revenge" (because we live near the Hale Family in Daybreak) before it hit the shelves. My kids loved the story and I made sure they knew that I went to school with the illustrator. We look forward to "Calamity Jack"...keep up the great work, you are inspirational.

Thanks Seth! I hope your kids enjoy the site. The comics are (for the most part) built for the 8-12 year old mind set. Although, I'm guessing a most of the commenters here are a bit older than that. I'd be interested in any anecdotes about kid readers. Anyone out there read this with their kids?

Jessica, there is NOTHING nerdy about Lewis and Clark! Do you hear me? NOTHING NERDY!

Does it count if my average reading age, as determined by my Goodreads profile, is 10 1/2?
