An Explosion of Ideas

Paul Bird
Paul Bird Author Interview

The Mistaken Monster is a fun adventure story following three kids who think they see a monster but discover something heartwarming instead. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

A family holiday, a conversation with my 10 year old daughter Sarah, an explosion of ideas, and the book was born.

What scene did you have the most fun writing in this book?

The scene where they all realise that stye have mistaken the old man for a monster. The interaction between him and the group reminds me of so many conversations with over people about how much they value company.

Was there anything from your own childhood that you placed into this story?

The snake going across the year din the opening is right out of my childhood. That was a really common occurrence where I grew up.

What do you hope is one thing readers take away from the story?

Don’t judge, kindness is our best defense.
