and Other Children Tales
Children’s literature author Pupola self-published her short story collection in February 2021. Here is a synopsis:
The short stories featured include a bear cub with his friends in the wild, and a mermaid named Kerka trying to figure out what to do with a baby flying fish. The baby flying fish refuses to go back to the fish nursery and wants to become a mermaid instead. The other short stories include a bored small boy escaping outside without his parents noticing, a young fly who lost his potato home, and a pony who meets 2 young unicorns, but no other horses believes in the pony!

You see an amusing incident while grocery shopping. Do you (1) record what happens in some form OR (2) do nothing?
I would do nothing. I would respect their privacy. As amusing as it might be, the poor person/people that the incident occurred to might have been out of their hands. It would be fair and the right thing to do. You would not want the same thing happening to you without your knowledge and consent.
Consent it is!
Science has advanced, and we can now colonize other planets. Do you (1) sign up to be a colonist OR (2) remain on Earth?
I would wait till things are more ‘ironed out’ like a decade. Never go with first generation stuff so they say…
Both feet on the ground!
You prefer (1) to eat a home-cooked meal with family and friends OR (2) to eat in a big-name restaurant?
I would prefer to eat a home-cooked meal with family and friends because there is no closing time like in restaurants and more freedom.
Freedom of home!
Do you find it (1) easy to give a witty retort OR (2) think of what you should have said after the conversation is over?
Usually, after the conversation is over, lol! I just get too absorbed into conversations.
You prefer (1) to people watch OR (2) bird watch?
I would prefer to people watch because some bird will always fly down and start pecking on the ground, so really best of both worlds!
People for you!
Thanks for being interviewed, Pupola!
