I am a Pole (And So Can You!)By Stephen Colbert
If you’ve ever wondered about the goals and aspirations of inanimate objects we take for granted every single day of our lives, I suggest reading I am a Pole. If you’ve ever wondered how a pole decides what type of pole to become in this world of many, many types of poles, then I suggest reading I am a Pole. But mostly, if you’ve ever felt like a picture book about self-discovery and finding your way in the world in a really cheesy and funny way may appeal to you, you should read I am a Pole.
And as a bonus, there’s a cute exchange between the late Maurice Sendak and Stephen Colbert, which began on “The Colbert Report”, led to the writing of this book, and capitulated in Mr. Sendak’s comment on the book, which published the day Mr. Sendak died.
