About the Book

Twice Just to be Sure is the word-playful tale of an optimistic child's reasoning in an unreasonably tumbley world. This silly serious story celebrates music, communication and garden veggies through the eyes of idgie, a child with a knack for contemplation. The book has beautifully artsy art, musicky music, and even a special typeface crafted around the story of name-challenged idgie, who discovers a solution to the "conundrums" of the world.

Uncle Pea is us:

Author & composer Joel Pomerantz

Joel spends his time messin' around in museums, editorial rooms, community centers, sand dunes and wayside picnic spots. His messin' missions have one thing in common: slathering folks like you with heaps of usable information. As a natural history educator, Joel cultivates local interest in the connections between urban and natural environments. His nerdy tours project, Thinkwalks, presents San Francisco as a rapidly unfolding boomtown woven into a natural setting, with strands of human foible. Joel has organized award-winning public art after a careering, uncareerful romp as a community journalist, a phone installer, a chef, a financial planner, a canoe instructor, a dung-shoveler and a housing and job counselor. Twice Just to be Sure is his unhindered foray into meta4iction.
