Do you remember the Weekly Reader of your childhood? Well, it's still around—and is currently featuring Stephen King in several of its print and online publications. In October, kids throughout the country submitted questions to King. Take a look at his answers. King has also composed the beginning of a spooky serial story for children at The Weekly Writer.
