Book name: A Hollywood Tail by Elizabeth Grace
Tell me a little about yourself?
Growing up, I was always told I had to find myself a squirrel job. The problem? I wanted to become famous. I really didn’t know what that was so I headed off to Hollywood to figure it out. This book is my story on the road to fame.
Where do you live?
I used to live in Snowy Creek, now I live in Hollywood.
Who is the most important person in your life?
I met Ben (a muscovy duck) and Lizzy (an iguana) and they have become really important to me. I still miss my family and friends in Snowy Creek though.
What was your childhood like?
I climbed a lot of trees and helped out on my mom’s cranberry farm, typically dropping the prized berry, Big Red.
Of all the people you've met, who would you LEAST like to be stuck in an elevator with?
Someone that works at the pound. The ones with the big nets.
What is the most important thing in your life? What do you value most?
Being famous was the most important thing, but now I know that friends are the most important. I value my friends the most.
What is your biggest fear?
What is the most important thing that ever happened to you? Why?
Getting suspended from school. Because of that, I followed my dream and moved to Hollywood.
Do you have any special talents or abilities?
I’m great at being famous!
How do you see your future?
I hope I become an even bigger star.
If you could spend the day with someone you admire (living or dead or imaginary), who would you pick?
I would choose Alvin and the Chipmunks. They’re pretty cool.
If you had a free day with no responsibilities, how would you spend it?
I’d get ice cream with my friend Ben.
