This School Year, Unleash Your Inner Ms. Frizzle

Valerie Frizzle was the invention of writer Joanna Cole, who passed away this summer of non-Covid-19-related causes, and illustrator Bruce Degen. The two were initially approached by an editor at Scholastic about concocting a humorous and stealthily informative series centered on a science teacher who leads her charges on out-of-the-box field trips. The pair ran with it, basing the project’s unforgettable central character on two of their own teachers: “The Friz,” as Ms. Frizzle’s students affectionately call her, was a blend of Cole’s childhood science teacher, Miss Blair, and Ms. Isaacs, Degen’s geometry teacher at the High School of Music and Art in New York City.

“I was in love with art, not math,” recalled Degen, a Brooklyn native who now lives in Connecticut. “Ms. Isaacs was in love with the concepts of math, and her face would glow with the beauty of the logic. I understood math for the

Revolver has teamed with GWAR for an exclusive white vinyl 2LP edition of the band’s 30th anniversary reissue of Scumdogs of the Universe, limited to just 350 copies worldwide. Order yours before they’re gone!

Pandemic. Natural disaster. Social upheaval. These are conditions one would expect an intergalactic barbarian warlord to revel in.

“It’s pretty much business as usual for us. It looks like GWAR has done their job in the world a little too well. Everything’s on fire,” the band’s vocalist Blothar tells Revolver, before the enthusiasm in his voice wanes ever so slightly. “Good work, humanity. The truth is we can’t claim any of it.”
