Author Russ Towne joins Dr. Bunny to discuss writing children’s books. Russ actually started out co-writing songs with a friend, and he says that was “the spark that lit the creative fire”!   He’s gone on to write many wonderful children’s books, including the bestseller “A Duck Who Flew Upside Down”.

So how does Russ come up with his ideas for books? How do you write a children’s book? And what inspired the word Grumpadinkles??

Russ has been described by good friend, Dennis Madden, as “a modern-day Art Linkletter, with a touch of Mr. Greenjeans”.  Tune in and get to know this very special author and wonderfully interesting man!
