Characters...

A huge part of any book is the characters.
Here, you have the chance to get to know Grace, the feisty ten-year-old monster-hunter, a little better.  And if you keep scrolling, you'll find out a bit more about Mr Harris, a man-eating, board-game playing cyclops with a penchant for doughnuts...

 

Questions and Answers with Grace

Q - What’s your full name?

A – Grace Matilda Hunter

A – Not really, I’ve faced some pretty big and scary monsters.

Q - What makes you happy?

A – My family and our bakery. Oh and exploding really horrible monsters. That makes me REALLY happy.

Questions and Answers with Mr Harris

Q - What’s your full name?

A – You can call me Mr Harris.
Q - Do you like it?
A – That’s a stupid question.

Q - If you could choose another name for yourself, what would it be? 

A – These name questions are ridiculous. Only ridiculous people are interested in names.

Q - Where were you born?
A – Another ridiculous question. In Cave Number 7, just off Goblin Gardens in Monster World.

Q - Who’s your best friend?
A – Friends? No thank you. I like to do things on my own.

Q - What’s your favourite subject at school?

A – I grew up in Monster World, thicko. I didn’t go to school. But I did do judo and expressive dance at the Young Monster Centre. I was VERY good at both.

Q - What’s your favourite food?

A – Oh I like food! I love iced doughnuts the best. But I also like, cake, biscuits (but not digestives – too BORING), apple pies, cherry pies, gypsy tart and those tiny chocolate cake things with a layer of orange jelly inside. They’re too small though. Wouldn’t fill a sparrow. Don’t mind the odd human, especially when they’re sprinkled with icing sugar (but don’t you dare tell anyone that).

Q - What’s your least favourite food?
A – Trolls. They’re bitter. And avocados. URGH. Slimy.

Q - Do you prefer indoors or outdoors?
A – Stupid question. Outside. I’m not giving a reason because I don’t have to.

Q - Cats or dogs?
A – What do you mean cats or dogs? Cats or dogs what? They both taste fuzzy. Not delicious. Is that what you mean?

Q - Do you believe in ghosts?
A – How thick are you? I lived next door to a family of ghosts. *rolls eye.

Q – What’s your dream job?
A – Politics. I want to give something back. And I’d be very important.

A – I’m an only-cyclops.

Q - What colour are your bedroom walls? 
A – I refuse to answer this question.

Q - What’s your party piece or special skill? 

A – Unicycling.

Q - Are you scared of anything?

A – I assume you are joking? What would I be scared of? *laughs 

Q - What makes you happy?

A – I don’t like the term ‘happy’, it sounds weak. Board games please me. I am the reigning champion of the Monster World Board Game Championships, you know.

Q – Can you tell a funny joke? 

A – Of course I can. On which day do monsters eat people?... Chews-day!

Anyway, I’m bored now because you’re asking me TOO MANY QUESTIONS.
