The Weaving Word

Weaving together the threads that make up my passion for the written word…as an author, editor, and follower of The Word.

Interview with a…kangaroo?

I’ve never interviewed an animal before, so today is a first!  I’m pleased to welcome Joey the Kangeroo from P.A.W.S. by Debbie Manber Kupfer.

kangarooWelcome!  And thank you for taking time out to talk to us, Joey.

G’day mates. I’m really happy to be here today *jumping up and down*.

We can see that Joey. Please take a seat? So tell us, how do you like St. Louis P.A.W.S.?

It’s great! Everyone’s really welcoming and the classes are super cool. And I love the dining room and all the scrumptious foods Hugo makes (even if he does eat half of it himself). I’ve made some new mates too – there’s Josh and Miri of course, but my best mate’s Sean. He can change into a horse, you know, and he’s been giving me riding lessons. I’m not very good yet, but I’m getting better. I only fell off four times last week.

So tell us about your home in Australia.

I’ve been attending classes at the P.A.W.S. Institute of Australia in Alice Springs ever since I was 5 years old. My sister Millie also goes there, but she’s not the best of students as she has a tendency to fall asleep in classes – I think that’s why she chose a koala as an animagus. They get to sleep a lot!

Why did you choose to become a kangaroo?

Well, kangaroos have a lot of energy and are always on the go. In Oz it’s a good disguise. In St. Louis, not so much, but I’m fast and normal (non-magical) folk, tend to ignore stuff that doesn’t make sense, so I can pretty much hop around Forest Park and no one much cares.

I hear you like to do magic tricks?

Oh yes, I’ve learned a lot from watching the Great Bobbert – and also learned some real magic from his weasel, Popgoes. Bobbert doesn’t know that his weasel’s magic of course; just thinks he’s a pesky pet that keeps running away, but he’s got a thing going with an otter in the zoo. He goes and visits her when the children’s zoo is closed. I like the zoo, too. My mate Ian, the chimp animagus, lives there. He’s been teaching me monkey jokes – you should go interview him some time.

Maybe we will. But back to you. Tell us a little bit about how you ended up in St. Louis P.A.W.S.?

Well, it was two years back. My teacher, Wemberly the wombat at Alice Springs, recommended that I enter this contest – I had to do all different kinds of magic both in my human form and my roo form – it was tough. A lot of magicians older than me entered, but somehow I got through all the rounds and ended up winning, and the prize was a scholarship to the P.A.W.S. Institute of the Midwest. So here I am.

And we’re very happy to have you! So what’s next? Do you know what you want to do when you graduate from P.A.W.S.?

Oh, I have so many ideas *jumping up and down* – first I want to travel – all over the States, and then to Europe, and then to Africa. I want to visit every single P.A.W.S. institute. I’ve heard that the head of the African Institute outside Nairobi can change himself into an elephant. That would be amazing to watch.

That certainly does seem amazing. Thank you for talking to us today, Joey!

No worries mate, any time.

 

P.A.W.S. Rachel2

 

When Miri receives a silver cat charm from her omama, Celia, on the night before she dies, she has no idea that the charm holds a family secret, a magic that saved Celia’s life and is about to make Miri’s a whole lot more interesting.
