What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I actually got the idea for this book during PiBoIdMo in November last year but as I was also taking part in the NaNoWriMo challenge too I decided to hold off developing it until January.
We had recently bought some new furniture and ended up with loads of empty cardboard boxes. It seemed like such a shame to just throw them out so the kids and I had some creative fun with them. I built a cardboard castle and a cardboard sword and shield for each of my boys. They had great fun playing with it. In the past I’d also made them a cardboard kitchen from left over boxes which resulted in weeks of fun. They used it to play house, and chefs. They even set up their own little restaurant and used smaller pieces to make menu’s.
It was playing with our left over cardboard boxes that sparked the idea for the book. When we were deciding what to make ours into we had loads of ideas.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The little boy in the book is based on my 2 year old son.
