Get “The Goods”

 Get The Goods
from Adam Rex’s “Abraham SuperLincoln”

Venerable-yet-irreverent multimedia publisher McSweeney’s recently announced a new project: The Goods,” a weekly newspaper insert offering “a gallimaufry of games, puzzles, comics, and other diversions” created by children’s authors and illustrators. Looking at their line-up — headed by such heavy hitters as Mo Willems, Laurie Keller, Lane Smith, Bob Shea, Adam Rex, and Children’s Literature Ambassador emeritus Jon Scieszka — I predict lots of breakfast table scuffles between kids and parents over who gets “The Goods” first.

While we’re on the topic of kids’ books and newspapers, The Guardian’s new kid-friendly children’s book site also looks like a good time, with news, kids’ reviews, and forums.
