Here’s an interview Amanda McCall and I did for Newsweek about our new baby animal book- Maybe Your Leg Will Grow Back!: Looking on the Bright Side with Baby Animals- which is in bookstores right now!
newsweek:

Friend of Newsweek tumblr Amanda McCall (The Wendy Williams Show) and Parks and Recreation funny-guy Ben Schwartz (Jean-Ralphio!) have a new book out this week, Looking on the Bright Side with Baby Animals, which is a follow up to their second book, Asking Awkward Questions with Baby Animals, which followed their first best-seller, Breaking Bad News with Baby Animals, all of which we have long fantasized about plastering all over the office doors of high-level Newsweek executives. Anyway: we asked them to answer some of our burning questions about baby animals, because, well, we think they’re funny. Also, because Amanda once wrote a book called, “Hold My Gold: A White Girl’s Guide to the Hip-Hop.” Please love them.
NWK Tumblr: Do you really think our leg will grow back?Ben:  Well, that’s the best part of our new book. It prevents you from ever having to ‘think’ about things like that. In fact, it prevents you from having to think about anything at all!
Is there a particular baby animal that’s best for breaking bad news?Amanda: When we started writing our first book, and even into our second book, we thought all baby animals were equally helpful. But now we know that every baby animal has its own particular skill set.
Ben: For example, kittens are good for relationship problems, while puppies are better for medical emergencies. For crime and other legal matters? Baby bunnies. God, they’re good.
Could your new book help Barack Obama handle the economy?Amanda: If Obama used baby animal postcards in all his negotiations, every American citizen would have free healthcare and drive a Bentley.
Who would i give this book to as a gift?Amanda: Our books are for everyone. Even Kardashians. In fact, I’m convinced that if this book came out a month earlier, Kim and Kris would still be together.
What’s the most over-rated animal?Ben: Humans.Amanda: Well, between us, cute little baby bears can be real divas.

For those of you who may not know, for the past five years, the talented Amanda McCall and I have been writing books published by Harper Collins.

And to top it all off, this is the first of our books to include a fancy ARTS AND CRAFTS section. Stickers, business cards, crowns, it has it all! (If those three things are considered “it all”)
