His latest book for adults is a collaboration with conservative writer Meghan McCain, entitled “America, You Sexy Bitch: A Love Letter to Freedom.” He is the author of the contemporary classic “My Custom Van (and 50 Other Mind-Blowing Essays That Will Blow Your Mind All Over Your Face),” and the children's books “Chicken Cheeks,” “The Purple Kangaroo,” “A Pig Parade Is A Terrible Idea” and “I'm Bored.” He's currently writing book reviews for the New York Times and working on three additional books of his own.
