Mrs. Publicist: Whoa! We almost forgot What’s In A Name, our monthly feature where Spence discusses a name in the Chet and Bernie series. What’s it going to be?
SQ: How about we pull a little switcheroo and dip into the Bowser and Birdie middle-grade series?
Mrs. P: The one that adults can read only if they have fake ID?
SQ: Exactly. Let’s do Bowser himself, the canine narrator.
Mrs. P: But not a talking dog.
SQ: Never! The name Bowser might come for old French beau sire – fine sir – which is appropriate in the end, but what I like is the sheer energy of the name, suggestive of bounding. Also the Bow part – a name with the beginnings of a bark right in it! Bowser’s name was the first thing that came to me in the whole series.
Mrs. P: Thanks, Spence! See you next month for another edition of What’s In A Name!

Admin: Have I mentioned that BOW WOW, 3rd in the Bowser and Birdie middle-grade series, is coming out next month (May 30)?
Spence: Several times. Are adults allowed to read them?

May 30, to be exact. Third in the Bowser and Birdie middle-grade series. (But NSA intercepts confirm that adults are reading them, too.)

“You familiar with bull sharks?” he said.
“Pah,” said Grammy.
“Meaning you are?” the sheriff said. “Or you don’t like them? Or what?”
“Who likes a bull shark?” Grammy said. “Have to be out of your mind.”
– from BOW WOW (May 27).
