  • Interview

    There were no interviews done about this author suprisingly even though he worked along side the Dr. Seuss writer. I found it interesting that no one felt an interest to ask him any questions. If I were to have my own interview about him I would ask him how he came up with his characters because a few books I noticed were about bired and I wonder why he chose birds alot.
