  2. Drew, I had no idea what kind of treat I was in for in listening to this podcast. I mean, ALL of Matthew’s interviews are great, so it’s not like I’m surprised, but I didn’t expect to gain such insight into screenwriting! Before now all I knew of you was that you wrote this amazingly funny book (Crayons, of course!) and that you spent a fun (I’m sure VERY fun) afternoon with Ame D. in Manhattan  Now I know so much more and couldn’t be more impressed!

    And I must thank you, very sincerely, that you are PRO “longer” word count for picture books! It’s SUCH an issue for me and seeing you, not just as successful with it, but a champion for it, thrills me!

    Matthew and Drew, thank you for a great hour! :D
