Interview with the Author

Q – For what ages are the Pomodoro Penguin books best suited?

A – The Adventures of Pomodoro Penguin is meant to be a fun and educational children’s picture book series for kids ranging from 4-8. The series is designed as a read-along book for ages 3-5, or to be read by by beginning readers who are about to transition into chapter books.

Q – What can I expect when I read a Pomodoro Penguin book with my kids?”

All of my picture books are 750 – 2,000 word range. That translates to between 28-50 pages of text and illustrations. You will enjoy reading these stories with your kids with their snappy rhyme an simple drawings. The character illustrations are designed so that creative young children may draw the characters themselves.

These stories, though fictional are filled with positive lessons and non-fiction elements and will provide many teachable opportunities for you and your child. I touch on subjects like geography, the arts, and history. Expect a science character to be introduced at some point as well.

Q – What order should my kids read the books in?

A – I’ve written the series so you can read the books in any order, though the first few books will introduce different characters to the series.

If you do want to read them in order, it would be best to follow this sequence:

– Pomodoro Penguin Makes a Friend

– Pomodoro Penguin and the Geography Giraffe

– Pomodoro Penguin visits Italy

– Pomodoro Penguin: Penguins, Penguins All Around

– Pomodoro Penguin and the Library Lemur

– Pomodoro Penguin: “Owl” about Owls (coming in 2015)

– Pomodoro Penguin and the History Hedgehog (coming in 2015)

The holiday books can be read year round –

– Pomodoro Penguin and the Halloween Costume Connundrum

– Pomodoro Penguin and the Thanksgiving Dinner Dilemma

– Pomodoro Penguin and the Christmas Countdown (coming in 2015)

Q – How did you come up with the idea of a red penguin that eats pasta anyway?

A – I was inspired by a pair of kitchen timers (one shaped like a penguin, and the other a tomato)

to create a little red penguin. They say you are what you eat – so perhaps Pomodoro turned red from eating too much tomato sauce – I’ll never tell.

Anyway, my hope was that I could use Pomodoro Penguin to introduce the Opera Gobbler and other “subject related” friends in a fun and accessible way to young kids. I thought, what better way than to put my creative energy toward creating the best children’s picture books that I could.

Q – So, why should readers give these books a try?

A – Because the Pomodoro Penguin books are fun and educational without coming across as preachy toward the kids. The rhymes are fun and your kids

will be able to relate to the characters.

Thanks for reading!
