What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
One source of inspiration is a book in Hebrew titled (freely translated) The House in which Coachroaches die of old age. It's a funny book about an animal-loving family and it inspired me to write about a child who is interested in having a critter as a pet
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Some of the scenes are biographical and truly happened to me or to my relatives, so I based my characters as a mix of people I know.
Bear was exploring a maggot he found in an apple.
“I think you’ll be a scientist like me when you grow up,” Dad said with a smile.
“Yeah!” Bear waved the magnifying glass. “And I’ll have my pet maggot and even a pet snake!”
“Yuck, snakes,” Bear’s little sister, Penelope, said. Then she noticed the maggot and mouthed a long eww.
“What’s that?” Mom twisted up her mouth at the sight of the maggot. “Someone might eat that by mistake,” she said and threw Bear’s pet into the garbage disposal.
