Interviews

Continuation of well-received series; lighthearted, playful stories with quirky illustrations that subtly teach parts of speech and other language concepts (which aren't usually kids' favorites); back matter provides the "meat" of the featured concept with more specific, informational text referring readers back to the story to see the concepts in practice
