Hello everybody i am doing a blog tour for Robbie’s book Daniel Daniels and the World’s worst Zoo organised by me and Digital Reads Blog Tours
I got the opportunity to interview the author Robbie Yates
(A quick note to Vijay)
Thanks for your awesome questions! I am so so excited and grateful that I’ll be appearing on your blog!
I hope you enjoy my responses.
1) Being an adult how could you step into the shoes of a child and imagine so much??
A very brilliant question!
My day-job helps me out.
I work with lots of children
And what that brings about
Is lots of childish moments
And lots of childish fun,
And so my inspiration
It comes from things I’ve done.
2) Do you write only children books?
I’m only writing stories
For children, that is true
But on my blog there’s poems and vids
I make for grown-ups, too.
3) Did you experience any bullying in school?
My childhood was okay but
I often felt alone.
So though I wasn’t bullied,
I spent time on my own.
I think that all the children
Who’ve ever been to school
Have met some kind of bully,
And that just isn’t cool.
4) Which animal character are you more connected with in the book?
I really like the monkeys,
The way they can be sneaky,
Plus, they are just like me:
Like them, I’m often cheeky!
5) Currently which book are you working on?
I’m working on two stories
And they’re not far away.
One’s about a teacher
Who’s odd in several ways.
Was total fun to write,
The next—“The Kooky Kids’ Club,”
Is also nice and bright!
Daniel Daniels spends most of his time doing one of two things:
- Avoiding the school bully, or
- Hanging out with his animal friends.
Unfortunately, Daniel’s animal friends all live at The World’s Worst Zoo, run by the cruel and crabby Mr Gregory.
One day, an unfortunate incident with some ointment at the zoo leaves Daniel with a few special tricks up his sleeve—tricks that he can use to save the animals, and teach Mr Gregory a lesson.
Curious, witty and sweet, this adventurous chapter book will charm and thrill the young and the young-at-heart!
