Q) Why do you choose kids as your reader ? is there any specific reason?
I believe it is incredibly important to read to young children from a very early age. Reading helps them develop , their vocabulary increases, reading helps children understand the world around them better. Don’t just deal with modern technology, they have books in their hands, and read.
Q) How did these stories and characters come to your mind?
I write more stories, not just tales. I take the characters in my stories from life. The tale is different. I was trying to find characters to be attached to and loved. The character of the wolf became different. As readers and bloggers have noted, I didn’t write the wolf like I did in other stories. I didn’t want to. He’s not evil, he’s a nice, sweet, kind-hearted wolf. The wolf sets a good example, let’s not let them box us in and dare to be whatever we want.
Q) Do you want to leave any message for your readers?
