Phoebe Fox interviews with the author of the Mortimer and Me chapter book series – Kathie McMahon! “A boy and a moose . . . What could possibly go wrong?” In her first book, Kathie McMahon writes about eight-year-old Jimmy, who is the new kid in school and has already been labeled as a troublemaker. “After his first attempt to make a friend has disastrous results, the only one who seems to care about him is Mortimer – a big ole clumsy moose who wanders into town causing problems of his own. Jimmy and Mortimer face one setback after another, including a run-in with a couple of bullies and an escape by the class pet. The soccer game between the teachers and the third graders might be the opportunity Jimmy is searching for. Can he and Mortimer finally prove to everyone that they belong?” There are seven books in her series, with illustrations by Tom Tate, and in this interview, Kathie McMahon reads an excerpt from her new release, Mortimer and Me: Undercover Moose. She also tells us about an exciting, upcoming new series!
