Lost in space. And, sometimes, in translation

I am Joe, children books author, storytelling workshops for children trainer, mother and... Woogie's writer. The last one basically, means two things.

The first thing is that I had to imagine and write his story. Who is he? Where does he come from? What does he like? What is his family like? And stuff like that. The same way as any writer does for a character who is about to come alive in a book.

What do people ask Woogie when they first meet him?

What do people ask Woogie when they first meet him?

I asked myself that very question first time I tested Woogie: what should I say? What should I ask him? It turns out that adults aren't always prepared to ask something when you tell them ”You can ask anything you want”. Kids aren't so shy. They always have questions, so many questions to ask and so little patience.
