Every month I’m going to be giving you a chance to shoot the breeze with one of Corne-on-the-Kobb’s central characters. They’ll answer any question you ask (within reason), so this is your opportunity to find out some more about them. What’s their favourite sport? When did they last tickle a lemur? Do they know the muffin man? You can ask all these questions and more, and then marvel as they completely fail to satisfy you with a sensible answer.
First up it’s Casper Candlewacks, our scruffy-haired hero who sets out on an adventure to save his Dad from being fed to the pigeons. Those of you who have read the book will have seen him in action, but for those of you who haven’t, here’s a little snapshot:
(That’s Casper on the right. Lamp Flannigan, on the left, is eating a bunch of coriander that he found on the floor.)
Imagine being the only boy with any sense in a village full of idiots. Imagine your only friend being Lamp Flannigan, a boy who invents things like sponge shoes for walking on water. Imagine your mum being addicted to the telly, your dad being a stressed chef who can’t cook and your little baby sibling owning a set of fangs to rival a shark. You just want a normal life, but in Corne-on-the-Kobb that’s just not going to happen.
If you need to know any more, just watch me interviewing Casper HERE!
Well, Casper’s agreed to answer some of your questions, so go ahead. This is your chance to find out what it’s like to live in a village full of idiots, so ask away! You can pose any question you like. It doesn’t even have to be about the book. He’s not an expert on much but he’ll give anything a good go.
So go on…ask Casper something! Stick a question in the comments below, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (although I’m still sorting that out so if I’ve not replied to you in email yet, it’s probably because I can’t access it at the moment. Be patient!) In a couple of weeks I’ll collate the questions and send them to Casper, and we’ll see what he comes back with.
GO GO GO!
