K.S., How did you come up with the title for your book? Does it have any special meaning?
The title just popped out one day during Mr. Pish’s first cross-country trip. I knew the title before I started even writing the book. You’ve got to love alliterations, right?
What was the hardest part of the book to write/research?
Since I was hoping the book would be used in schools as an educational tool, I had to double and triple check every statement to make sure each detail was completely accurate. I actually learned a lot during that process.
Does your book have any underlying theme, message, or moral?
Absolutely. I’m totally trying to brainwash the younger generations to be more aware of the world outside. Mr. Pish is the cute distraction which lures kids (and adults) into learning about geography, history, and all the great stuff around us without realizing it.
What would/could a reader or reviewer say about this book that shows they “get” you as an author?
“Wow, you must have a really good camera.” Just kidding. How about “my kids and I sat down and read this book – and ended up discussing some of the places Mr. Pish visited. Now we want to get out there and see what we can discover.”
Give us an excerpted quote from your favorite review of this book:
