There’s a great interview with Simon Higgins, author of Tomodachi: The Forest of the Night, at the fabulous Kids’ Book Review site. Simon gets asked ‘Twelve Curly Questions’ and replies with twelve interesting answers!
Here’s a little taster:
Tell us something hardly anyone knows about you.
The two most unusual jobs I have ever had were: 1. Being a roaring monster in a circus ghost train (had to wear a giant rubber head and hairy suit) and, 2. Being a camel handler, helping children to climb on the camel for rides and leading the animal, for the same circus. Many years later, I rode a camel into the Egyptian desert and my guide was surprised at how familiar I was with ‘camel nature’. So, I say, everything you experience is useful. Even weird stuff!
