An Interview with Andy Griffiths
Andy Griffiths is well known as a writer of children's books. Here are some interesting things, you might not know about him!
What do you like to do after a long day of writing?
I go for long runs and bike rides beside the beach. An hour of exercise after a long day of writing gives me energy. Then I'm ready to write some more.
Do you write using a computer or by hand?
At first I write the stories by hand, and then I transfer（转录）them onto a computer. I like to write by hand when I travel. I find it very easy to lose myself in my diary when I am away from my usual activities.
What super power would you like to have?
X-ray vision（影像）if I can control it.
What is your favourite food?
I'm never happier than when I'm drinking banana milkshakes. And I love fish. But I don't like drinking fish milkshakes - they are just terrible!
What is your favourite book?
Alice in Wonderland. It has so many surprises and such silliness in it.
Do you write for adults too?
Only if I really have to. I much prefer the freedom and fun of writing for children.
What do you say to kids who say, "Why should I read?"
As Dr. Seuss says. "The more you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you'll go."
