“The Adventures of Crockpottle”: An Interview With the Main Character
1. What was the first thing you noticed after the wizard’s magic gave you a new life?
“Feet. Definitely my feet. As a crock pot, I never had feet before. Now, suddenly, I can walk wherever I want to with my best friend: the wizard Mirth! He’s the one who woke me up. Now, we go on trips to the fields of wisdom and love, meeting new friends along the way. And sometimes, we even have a picnic!”
2. Are you scared of anything in particular?
“Oh yes, sometimes! New things. They can scare me. Or, at first, I was very scared of the Mucky monster who lived in the land of Muck Muck! He’s very sneaky and used to play tricks on people – like switching road signs until you get lost. We had to escape him: flying away on our giant dragonfly friend, Cappy! But after I used my magic healing powers on Mucky, he’s much nicer. And now we’re friends too!”
3. What do you want to share most with your readers?
“Love and forgiveness are always the answer to most problems. If you can show kindness and forgiveness, you can heal almost anything. Hate can be a poison – but love always heals.”
