From Nerdy Book Club: EAT YOUR ROCKS, CROC! COVER REVEAL – INTERVIEW WITH DR. SUGAR GLIDER AND JESS KEATING
Hello Nerdy Book Club!
Jess Keating here. As some of you may know, I’m a zoologist as well as an author. I’m always sniffing around for new stories to tell and new natural worlds to explore. But the planet is so big – where do I even begin?!
Sometimes, you need to go straight to the source. Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone with the inside scoop who can share stories and take us on an epic journey?
That’s where Dr. Sugar Glider comes in! She’s the star of my next book, EAT YOUR ROCKS, CROC:Dr. Glider’s Advice for Troubled Animals. Not only is she a talented doctor, she’s also our curiosity tour guide for this book — we’re going on an adventure!
For the first time in my life, I get to celebrate a cover reveal by interviewing a sugar glider. Let’s get into it!
Jess: Are you ready, Dr. Glider? You’ve only got one chance at a first impression!
Dr. Glider: Ack! No pressure! This is my first interview!
Jess: Don’t worry. The Nerdy Book Club loves to meet new friends. They won’t bite, I promise.
Dr. Glider: Oh sure, the last time I heard that, I nearly lost a toe to a crocodile. Hopefully the Nerdies aren’t hungry.
Jess: Definitely not! Let’s start with the basics. You’re a sugar glider, a doctor, and travel the world to help animals, right?
Dr. Glider: Yep! I am the luckiest glider in the world, because I get to meet so many animals (and sometimes plants!), and help them with any problems in their lives. Some have medical issues, some are having trouble dealing with friends and family, and some just need a hug and a pep talk. It’s fun getting to meet everyone!
Jess: I bet! It’s really awesome of you to bring young readers with you in this book, so they can explore so many different stories and meet different characters as you travel. Were you nervous to see your adventures turned into a book?
Dr. Glider: I was very scared! But when I was a young sugar glider, books were how I explored the world. Every shelf in our tree was packed with books of all kinds. Books changed my life, and they made me the curious sugar glider I am today. I’m overjoyed to think that this book might spark some curiosity in readers too.
