Scott Peterson and Joshua Pruett have found much success in the TV world (notably Phineas & Ferb), but now the two writers have turned their attentions – and their wild wit and crazy imaginations – to books. At the Flintridge Bookstore & Coffeehouse this afternoon, they will be sharing their first original Middle Reader book, “Shipwreckers: The Curse of the Cursed Temple of Curses or, We Nearly Died. A Lot.” What do they mean by “first original” you may wonder? It’s just that they also wrote “Jungle Book: The Strength of the Wolf is the Pack,” a novelization of the Jungle Book film. Complete with treacherous temples, ancient idols, and plenty of unnecessary explosions, “Shipwreckers” is a sprawling action-comedy-adventure-goof-fest that takes readers on a dangerous and thrilling – and hilarious – ride up the Amazon (River, that is). Books can be reserved now. For further information, contact Gail Mishkin at 818-790-0717. Parking is available in the rear of the store.
