Dissecting the Frog

We're Going to Try to Analyze Humor, God Help Us

EB White once wrote, “Humor can be dissected, as a frog can, but the thing dies in the process and the innards are discouraging to any but the pure scientific mind.” Humor is difficult to nail down and everyone has a different style, yet New York Times bestselling and award winning author, Adam Rex will attempt the impossible -- teaching authors how to be funny.

Adam Rex

Adam Rex wrote and/or illustrated all the books you like including the New York Times bestselling Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich , the New York Times bestselling School’s First Day of School, and also a number of titles about which the New York Times has been strangely coy. His first novel, The True Meaning of Smekday, was adapted into the DreamWorks feature film Home. Having your book get turned into a movie is like that section in L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz where the woodsman systematically chops off all his body parts one by one and replaces them with tin. But in a good way? Like maybe with the heart still intact? This isn’t one of Adam Rex’s better metaphors.
