The Surprise? He Was Cute.
All right. Quick now. How am I going to justify this one?
Um . . . okay! I've got it. Ricky Gervais has thus far written two picture books about Flanimals (not to be confused with Scranimals). Therefore we can label him a celebrity author and connect him to children's literature in some vague and tentative fashion.
That said, if you're a fan of The Office (the real one) you have no choice but to go to this site. If you are not a fan of The Office, you should still check it out. The man is funny. Painfully, agonizingly funny, but funny nonetheless.
