Today, I am honored to be able to interview Bennie the Blue Bunny. You may know him from the children's picture book "Where is My Bennie?" by April, Celeste, and Ruby Robins.
Bennie, you are a mighty handsome fellow in spite of your scars.
Thank you April, I try to keep in shape. No extra stuffing for me.
You and Austin are best friends. How did you meet?
I was a gift to Austin at his baby shower.
In the book Where is My Bennie?; you experienced a terrifying ordeal. Would like to tell us about it?
Yes, I always sleep with my best friend Austin who was five at the time of the story. While he was sleeping, his grandmother's dog, Hunter, snatched me from his arms. I was scared at first but soon realized that Hunter loved stuffed animals. He did not think of me as a meal.
We are so glad that was true . I failed to ask you if you enjoyed the car ride to Grandma's?
April, come on, you have read the book. You know I was safely packed in Austin's suitcase.
Sorry Bennie. I was just asking for those who have not read the book yet. I understand that Austin and his Grandfather searched all over the house for you. Did you hear them calling your name?
No, I was sound asleep.
Where did they finally find you? Who rescued you?
Grandma came home with her new hairdo and saved the day. I was in Hunter's kennel. You would think that Grandpa would have thought to look there. I think he and Austin were too upset. By the way April, did you know that I can speak Spanish?
That is great Bennie! I will have to have you back to discuss the Spanish Version. Bennie, do you have anything else to add to this interview.
Yes, I would like to know if your AuthorsDen friends or their children have their own special stuffed friend. If so, what are their names?
Thank you so much Bennie. I will ask them.
