Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Audio
In this audio edition of Colbert’s children’s book, Tom Hanks performs a rhyming story about a metal pole suffering from an existential crisis. The pole goes through numerous jobs—he tries working at a barber shop; he tries working at a strip club—before (spoiler alert) deciding to become a flag pole: “the very best kind of pole that I could hope to be.” A large portion of this eight-minute production features Colbert interrupting Hanks by trying to read the title’s ISBN and by attempting to convince Hanks to re-read the text in Spanish. Despite its brevity, this audiobook boasts excellent production values, a soundtrack, and an entertaining reading from Hanks—he is, after all, an Academy Award–winning actor—who has excellent chemistry with Colbert. A Grand Central hardcover. (May)

Meet the Author

Stephen Colbert was The Daily Show's longest-running and most diverse correspondent. His personality, insight and overall rightness could only lead to The Colbert Report, a half-hour nightly platform for him to give his take on the issues of the day, and, more importantly, to tell you why everyone else's take is just plain wrong. The show has been hugely successful.
