What’s awesome and awesome and awesome all over?
That’s a tough one. We’ll give you a hint.
It’s Daniel Handler a.k.a Lemony Snicket a.k.a Living Breathing Awesome, and he will be living and breathing and awesoming ALL OVER FIGMENT. You might know Daniel from the A Series Of Unfortunate Events series, or from his new YA book Why We Broke Up, about fringe chick Min and super jock Ed and their now-fallen-to-pieces relationship. Min is itemizing their entire relationship—one comb, one toy truck, two bottle caps—and then throwing it all away.
These itemized objects are illustrated by Maira Kalman, who’s created dozens of children’s books, including Max Makes a Million, Chicken Soup, Boots, and The Principles of Uncertainty. Maira’s pictures and Daniel’s words weave together this incredible smart and clever story.
Daniel Handler’s coming to Figment and answering your questions. Only the biggest, boldest, and bestest make it to Daniel, so make sure your questions are solid gold.
