Books That Make You Launch into Outer Space – With No Less Than Snoodles

Steven Joseph, beloved children’s book author, crankiness expert and humorist, has darkened our door a fourth time to offer tongue-twisting laughs with his latest installment of the “Snoodles” Saga: Snoodles in Space: A Snoodle, The Zoodle Kidoodles, and One Happy Schmoodle.

Steven discusses how the beloved series was conceptualized and developed, further tips for managing crankiness from the ultimate authority on crankiness, and what it was like for Steve to present his book to Oscar nominees at the DPA Luxe Gift Suite the week of the Oscars.

By day, Steven is an attorney and negotiator, so he knows well the process of shifting one’s perspective to see things anew. As a result, he brings a fresh point of view to the world of children’s literature that’s as entertaining as it is emotional and intellectually stimulating.
