An Interview with a children’s book character

 “Hey Bob we are glad to have you with us today.”


 Glad to be with you.

 “Bob, can you tell us the name of the book you are a character in?”


 The name of the book is “Bob’s Blue Period.”

 “So you are the main character in this children’s book?”


 I am and I have a friend who is in the book briefly, Bat.

 “Who created you and who is the author of the book?”


 The creator and author are the same, Marion Denchars. She lives in London with her husband and two sons.

 “Tell us about you and your part in the story.”


 I love to paint and my best friend in the whole world is Bat and I’m blue because of something he did.

 “Artists paint from their heart so I can see this problem you had was real.  Did you find your happiness again in the book?”


 I did and when you read the book you will see all my pictures and you will meet Bat, my best friend.

“Wonderful! I bet the illustrations are great as well as the story. Many will relate to your character too. Thanks for being with us today.”


 When you open the book to read it, I will be hanging up-side down with my best friend.
