Interview with Hank and Rosie Children’s Book Characters from “Noboby Hugs A Cactus”

http://Carter Goodrich

Good Afternoon,

Everyone who reads this interview will fall in love with this little guy and his girl. It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to Hank and Rosie.

“Hank I’m looking forward to this interview today.”


Thank you, Rosie and I are glad to be here today.

“So let’s start by telling us who created you.”


Rosie and I were created by Carter Goodrich. I believe you have interviewed two other characters from another book he has written and illustrated.

“Yes we have interviewed two other characters from his book Say Hello to Zorro.

“Can you tell us about your character?”


You aren’t going to believe this but I was once was a loner and maybe a little cranky. I had a big window to set in and the sun in my face. I was happy to be by myself.

Several passed by my window but I did not care for it much.

“So you were cranky. You don’t seem to be that way today.”


I changed my mind about being by myself. It hurt to hear nobody wants to hug a cactus too. I knew I needed to change my attitude.

“Had you ever thought about what it would be like to be hugged?”


Not really. I guess I was just into being by myself. No one ever really tried to be very close to me. I was cranky remember.

“So Rosie, what did you think of Hank.”


He was cranky so I moved along quickly.

“I see you are stuck to him now.”


We are stuck together but it is pretty nice.

“Hank are you enjoying the company?”


I would not have it any other way.

“So how did this change happen?”


We can’t tell you everything! Our children’s book is available now. So go on buy the book and read it.


Hank you are being cranky again.


Sorry everyone my crankiness still sneaks out every once in awhile.

“You are forgiven and thank both of you for a great interview.”
