My Life as a Hero

Every time I'm on a plane, I wonder if there'll be an emergency where someone cries out: "HELP! Is there a children's writer on board?"

And then I'll leap to my feet, hit my head on the overhead bin, stagger into the aisle, and get run over by the beverage cart.

Ooh, I wrote a poem! It's called...

"Why I Look Scared Riding My Bike"



Big truck? 


Driver texting?


So a rider like me, who's oh-so wary,

Pedals on bikes that are stationary.

A friend's daughter saw this picture of NBA commissioner Adam Silver...

She asked, "Is that Bart King?

(Little did she know that I am the commissioner of my family's fantasy basketball league!)

I love signs!

Hey, want to read something cool?

Check out this article about "EXTREME BAGPIPING SITUATIONS." It details bagpiping in war, Antarctica, and even outer space! (Photo via.)

Thing I Didn't Expect to See This Weekend:

A matinee showing of our dog chasing a coyote out of the backyard!

Augie chased it across the street, and then the coyote was like, "We good here?" and Augie was like, "Holla!" (And then he proudly trotted home.)

Bart King: Author/Blurber

My friend Laura runs Forest Avenue Press, which is pretty cool. Also cool is the fact that her seven-year-old daughter, Hadley, put out a book of stories…and I got to write a blurb for it!

Check out my handy wrist wallet!

Ever since I started wearing mine, people give me impressed looks that say, “Hey, there goes a man with fashion confidence.

At least, I *think* that’s what their expressions mean. And that's why I bought all three colors—one for each wrist!
