The press department for the Rosenbach Museum refers to Stephen Colbert's book "I Am A Pole (And So Can You!)" as a "children's book," quotations included.

I've always liked Steven Colbert's intellect. He's obviously well-read and not at all reluctant to bring that intellect into his popular humor program.
This article discusses Philadelphia's Rosenbach Museum exhibit comparing Colbert's literary prowess with that of James Joyce. Of course, it caught my eye having recently spent five days meandering around the literary scenes of Joyce and other Dublin writers.
If you haven't seen Colbert's Northwestern University commencement speech or his incredible interview with Maurice Sendak done just prior to Sendak's death, you might be in for a surprise. Both are linked to in this article.
