7 Random Questions with Jean Reagan

Jean has written an adorable picture book that my family can't get enough of. My five-year-old loves the humor and the silly artwork (illustrated by Lee Wildish). We can't wait for Poppy to visit so we can share this wonderful book.

To learn more about Jean, check out her website.

 7 Random Questions with Jean Reagan

1-What’s the last book you bought?
And Then It's Spring by Julie Fogliano, illustrated by Erin E. Stead.  I bought it for my daughter's 25th birthday 'cause I always give her a picture book in addition to something more "age appropriate!"

2-If you had to dedicate your book to a thing (and not a person), what would that thing be?
A canoe.  Each summer I serve as a wilderness volunteer ranger in Grand Teton National Park and I patrol by hiking and by canoeing. 
3-What’s an interesting tidbit readers might not know about you or your books?
There's a photo on my website of Katherine Paterson reading to my sister and me when I was about three (over 50 years ago!). 

4-If you could have any career, what would it be? (And it can’t be “author”.)
A full-time, year-round national park ranger.  How cool would that be?
5-Do you prefer the sunrise or the sunset?
In theory I prefer a sunrise, but in reality I enjoy sunsets much more frequently than I do sunrises.  

6-What is the name of the protagonist in your work-in-progress?
Sparky.  The story is about a dog who's afraid of the water.

7-What’s your favorite word?
Besides, "chocolate," my favorite word is "discombobulated."  Sadly, I haven't yet figured out how to work it into a story.
