Tomie, the Crooner

As Jarrett Krosoczka and I were discussing his next video featuring authors and illustrators, singing and dancing were mentioned. (What does he have in mind? Has he already started filming? When can we expect a new video? I hope I'm not starting a rumor.)

During our exchange, I remembered Tomie's singing debut on a CD. The CD is called "Stranger Than Fiction," and Tomie sings "On the Good Ship Lollipop." You can buy Tomie's single on iTunes. Search "Stranger Than Fiction."

Others featured on the CD include Maya Angelou, Dave Barry, Ken Follett, Matt Groening, Carl Hiassen, Stephen King, Norman Mailer, Jessica Mitford and Amy Tan.
