Bonny Becker has a series of the popular bear books — A BIRTHDAY FOR BEAR, A VISITOR FOR BEAR, THE SNIFFLES FOR BEAR — and her latest, A BEDTIME FOR BEAR, which won the SCBWI Crystal Kite Award for Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota. Congratulations, Bonny! Here’s a little more info about Bonny. Guess where she wants to visit? I don’t think anyone I know has picked it.
Tea or coffee? Flavor? Milk or sugar?
Bonny: Definitely coffee. Double-shot latte with sugar. Many times.
Deciduous or evergreen?
Bonny: Even though I live in the Evergreen State, I gotta go with deciduous. They are just so graceful and complex.
What’s always in your fridge?
Bonny: Half-and-half. For aforementioned, latte.
Cat or dog?
Bonny: Woof! Woof!
Jeans or fancier?
Bonny: At home, my string tie pants. Out and about, usually a step up from jeans.
Short hair or long?
Bonny: Once upon a time, down my back. Then the uninspired but short and utilitarian “Mom” cut. Now chin or shoulder length.
Bonny: The one I just took—a villa in Tuscany in easy reach of Florence (art, beauty, history) and a swimming pool (lazing around, reading, staring at a leaf.)
Favorite sport or form of exercise?
Bonny: Snow skiing.
Country you’d most like to visit?
Skill you’d most like to acquire?
Bonny: Can I have three? Fluency in French. Ability to memorize easily. Playing the guitar.
