Author of the Month - Colt J.

By Emma Gutierrez / November 08, 2023

As we go into this holiday season, we begin to think about those who are important to us and how thankful we are for our loved ones. November’s featured author is Colt who wrote “The Adventures of Bob.” This story takes us through two friends who are very important to each other. Let’s get into Colt’s story!

Bob may just be a stuffed eagle, but he is very important to his owner, Colt. Colt takes great care of Bob. Colt loves Bob so much that sometimes Bob feels worn out. But…he always feels loved more than worn out. Colt is very kind to Bob. 

He loves to go outside and play. Bob has a few good friends, but he loves to hang out mostly with Colt. Bob loves Colt more than apple pie.

Bob loves to play. He is the most playful eagle on planet Earth.

His eagle feathers may be a bit worn out, but he is still very loved.

Bob loves to eat a lot of snacks. But now he’s trying to cut back.

Bob loves to go on adventures, his very first adventure was to Colt’s house. He first explored the outside and later found a place to rest for the night that was made of boogie boards and sticks.

The next adventure Bob goes on is to a different house. He ends up exploring many of the houses.

Bob’s always flapping his wings, but he could not fly like other birds.

Bob has many new adventures that await him!

Thank you, Colt, for letting us feature your story. We loved reading about the adventures and understanding how important Bob is to his pal and owner.

Keep reading to see what Colt had to say in his interview!

Where did you get your Lulu Junior kit? Who gave it to you?
Grandma ordered it from the Lulu Jr website.

Where did you get your idea for your story?
When I was a little kid (2 years old), I got a stuffy eagle from a store that lets you pick an animal and they use a machine to stuff it.

How does it feel to be a published author?
It feels like I should get money for my book.

What's the one piece of advice you'd share with another young writer?
It takes a long time and it is harder than I thought.

What do you like to do when you're not writing?
I like to do art and build Legos’ and watch my iPad.

Do you prefer writing or illustrating? Why?
I prefer drawing because writing is not very fun.

What's one of your favorite books?
I like Those Darn Squirrels and Christmas Mouse.

How do you like to set up your writing/drawing space?
I like to put a shelf with books and block my art space so no one can distract me.

What inspires you to write or draw?
I want to buy “Legos” with money I make from art and writing.

What do you want people to remember about your book?
I want people to know my story is not the best, but it is hard to create a story and I tried.
