Lyn McNichol and laura Jackson have done a brilliant job writing their Badger the Mystical Mutt books for children, and wanted to find out why they'd written them and who or what was their inspiration for quite an adventurous dog who stood up for victims of bullying - but also helped the bullies!
Vicky:- Who first thought up the idea for the books?
Lyn & Laura:- We can't remember who thought of it first. It just started out as an idea, and we thought it would be easy (hah!). We went on holiday together in 2005, and wrote 300 words then, and thought job done. We had so much to learn. We revisited it in 2008, and then it was only when we got our editor on board in 2010 that the first book started to take a more structured shape.
Vicky:- What or who was your inspiration?
