Last week that marvellous and historical comic THE BEANO asked mine (and me) to explain on primetime BBC RADIO 4’s ‘Saturday Live’ as part of the PR surrounding it’s 75th anniversary.
My wee gal is only 8 but seemed to steal the show – as she explained why and how THE BEANO got her to read when nothing else could with the dyslexia issue. We were both so chuffed with the funny texts and calls and emails that we ended up getting from all over the UK and from around the world even – about this daft wee appearance!
But when we got home- her main issue was this “I wanted to talk more about Minnie the Minx. I don’t just like her ’cause she is a girl. I just think that she is actually COOLER than Dennis because she doesnt have a dog to help her or some big enemy and his gang like Walter The Softy and his softies. It’s just her against her dad. And that’s way funnier and it makes her waaaay tougher than Dennis!”
No big deal. Just made me smile. And ‘Well Proud.’
