Q&A with Ree Drummond!
How did you come up with the story of Little Ree?
The story of Little Ree is basically my own story! I moved to the country (as an adult) after living in town my whole life, so I was able to draw on all of those experiences and tell them from the perspective of a little girl.
What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating this story?
I was surprised by how much fun I had reliving some of those experiences as I wrote the story. For example, I remember that when I first moved to the country, the noises I heard at night were a little unsettling. Too many strange critters! As I wrote those pages in the book, I felt like I was in that bed over twenty years ago!
What would you say to children who are interested in becoming a writer?
Writing is just like a muscle! The more you exercise it, the stronger it will become. So write, write, write---whether it's a letter to your grandmother about what you did at school that day, or a short story.
Did you enjoy helping with cooking and baking as a child?
I have always enjoyed eating! When I was a child, I enjoyed baking more and would help my mom with Christmas cookies, cinnamon rolls, and so forth. As I became an adult, I moved over to the cooking category. Baking is not my strong suit because it's so precise!

Little Ree looks at this move as a big adventure. And, from our insight into the grown up Ree, we know how upbeat and positive she is. The country is a big adventure, new animals, yucky little animal droppings on the ground, early morning hours, but all in all, this adventure is the most wonderful thing for Little Ree. Grandma wakes her up early to help with chores, and then help make breakfast. And, then, a big country bar be que with her family and cousins. This is a fast paced, fun time, and will appeal to most children. I particularly like the tone of the book, upbeat and positive. This sends such a good message to our children, and to their adults.
The storyline is fun and it is appealing to most everyone. The illustrations by Jacqueline Rogers are bright, vibrant and colorful. They depict all the adventures of Little Ree and her colorful attire. Her red hair in braids and her blue cowboy boots. This appears to me to be the beginning of a series about Little Ree in her her new found home in the country.

I always read every book I give for a gift...and I love it!
I watch Ree on the food network and feel I know her...so the book is a fun part of her.
