Welcome back to week two with our interview with Beasley!!!

Today we will be talking to Beasley about his second book he has out called, “Beasley and Friends to the Rescue.”

Let’s get started!

Me:  Hello Beasley! Thank you for coming back to visit with us again! I see you brought someone with you today!

Beasley: Hello Miss Rosie! Thank you for having me. Yes, this is a character that is in my second book. Allow me to introduce Lola Duck. We have been friends for a very long time.

Me: Hello Lola Duck! Welcome! It’s nice to have you here. I must ask, is there something the matter?


Lola Duck: Hello! I’m very happy to be here. May I ask you a favor Miss Rosie?
Those lights are very bright and I can’t see. Can you turn them down a bit?

Me: Oh I’m sorry Lola Duck! We can’t do that but wait here. I have something for you.
There, is that better? 
Lola Duck: Oh yes, much better, thank you!

Beasley: Miss Rosie, you will have to excuse Lola Duck, she’s a little nervous to be here today. She gets very worked up at times.

Lola Duck: I’m so nervous I can hardly quack!!!

Beasley: Just breathe Lola Duck, I’ll do all the talking.

Me: Alrighty then, let’s see. In your book, you start off telling us all about what it’s like to live in the country.

Beasley: Yes, it is a beautiful place to live! In fact the opening page is how I spend my days in the country.
Me: So what’s this I read about there being a big racket over at Farmer Bill’s barn?

Lola Duck: Oh, it was just dreadful! The noise scared me so much I had to get Beasley!

Beasley: Yes, that was quite a day! I had just got all snuggled in for my nap and boom, here came Lola Duck squawking from down the road.


Me: What did you do then?

Beasley: Well we had to do something! I told her we would have to gather some friends and head over there. We didn’t want to make the trip alone you know. You never know what you might find these days.

Lola: After a while I did agree with Beasley that we should gather our friends. {{{sigh.}}}

Me: Who all did you get to come with you?

Beasley: First we stopped off to get Frank Frog.

Lola Duck: I sure didn’t want to go there!!! The alligators! The alligators!

Beasley: It all turned out find, didn’t Lola Duck?

Lola Duck: Then he wanted to get Jeter Jackrabbit. Well, I know Farmer Bill would not like that for reasons I won’t mention on the air!!

Beasley: Ha! Well, then we moved on to see if our friend Bubba could help.

Lola Duck: Eeeek! Just the sound of his name scares me!!

Beasley: That turned out fine too!

Lola Duck: Then, then, then…. You wanted to get Captain Coley Coyote. Boo, hoo, hoo, I just couldn’t even look at him! 
Me: My, this sounds like this was a hard day for you Lola Duck!
What did you find when you got to Farmer Bill’s Barn?

Lola Duck: Well, you see….

Beasley: We don’t want to give it away! We worked and worked and we found something….

Lola Duck: Spectacular!!!

Beasley: Shhhhh… don’t give it away!

Me: I’m sure readers will be very interested in finding out what was there.

Beasley and Lola Duck: THANK YOU FOR HAVING US! 
 
 
Hello Beasley! Welcome to Books by Rose! So happy you can join us today!

Beasley: Woof, woof! Thank you for having me Miss Rosie!

Me: My, my Beasley! You are quite the star on Amazon and Twitter! Let me see here. One reviewer writes in and says:  

“It is a sweet story of the dog's search for his family.” 

Another reviewer writes, “My 3 year old son loves this book! It's very engaging, has beautiful pictures, and is a wonderful story.”

Beasley: Ah, thank you! Now I’m blushing!

Me: Do you know you were written about a little beagle I knew?

Beasley: Yes, I heard about that! I believe his name was Georgie. From what I understand, he was loved by many!

Me: Yes he was Beasley. In fact, it was me that owned that puppy…well I should say, my brothers, my sister, and I.

Beasley: What happened to him?

Me: Unfortunately, he was hit by a car when he was very young.

Beasley: I’m sorry to hear that Miss Rosie! I’m happy to be able to keep his memory alive for you though!

Me: You are keeping memories alive for many! Our friend had two Beagles named Lexy and Penny. Another friend had a puppy named Allie. Shhhhh, don’t tell anyone, she’s a Bassett Hound. She was so cute, I had to include her! You were drawn to look like all of them!

Beasley: That makes me very happy! Ah Rooo!



Me: Beasley in your first story, “Beasley’s Journey,” you were accidently left in the city by your owners when they moved. How did that make you feel?

Beasley: Well, at first I was a little scared. I met up with the door man from where my home was on Carlson Street. He pointed the way they had left down the road. I knew I would find my way after that. Beagles have a tremendous sense of smell.

Me: Did you find your family right away Beasley?

Beasley: Oh no Miss Rosie! It took me all day! It was quite a journey to say the least!

Me: Did you meet anyone along the way?

Beasley: Yes indeed! I met many nice friends that day!

Me: Can you tell us more about that?

Beasley: It was a little tricky with a few of them. I did have a run in with a squirrel that was less than friendly. I understood though, I did surprise him. He was very protective over his tree and his park.


 


I startled a cat that wasn’t expecting me in his neighborhood. He sure was a cute little fellow. I feel bad now that I scared him.

Me: Tell us about some of your other friends you met that day? Beasley: Well let me see…hum, there was the little gray mouse, a charming bunny, a beautiful robin bird, a giant cow, and a pretty pony. 

Me: They sound like wonderful friends! So what happened after that?

Beasley: Yes, yes they were!

Thank you for your concern Miss Rosie!  I wouldn’t want to spoil anymore of the details about my adventure.

Me: Oh, of course not, I see!

One last question before we go. What do you want readers to walk away with after reading your story?

Beasley: I would want them to know, to make sure their pets are always safe. There is a way they can do that. In fact, there’s a question regarding that at the back of the book.

I would tell them that for each book sold, a dollar will be donated to an organization called “The Rescue Project.” They help animals all over our city with food, medical treatments, educating pet owners, and finding homes, if needed.

Lastly, never give up on your destination! Also, I want them to know that we are all different, but kindness wins in the end.

Me: That’s wonderful Beasley!!!

I understand you have another book out. Will you come back and tell us more about that one?

Beasley: Yes, I would love to! It’s called “Beasley and Friends to the Rescue.” My, oh my, what a day that was!

Me: I can’t wait to hear all about it!


Thank you again for your visit today Beasley!
