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?

Admin: No.

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