About this Article

"Weird Al" Yankovic swears the young boy featured in his second children's book isn't him. The book is not autobiographical, but Yankovic's latest written work certainly features elements of the creative, quirky and plain weird that have made the 53-year-old accordion player and pop satirist famous for his musical parodies."People of all ages can enjoy my music," he said Wednesday "And I think that applies to the children's book as well."
