What’s In A Name?

Mrs. Publicist: Fifteenth of the month, so time for What’s In A Name, where Spence discusses a character name from the Chet and Bernie series.

Spencer Quinn: How about we throw a curveball and go for a name from the Bowser and Birdie middle-grade series?

Mrs. P: I understand that adults can read them too.

SQ: But only if they have fake ID. One of the important supporting characters – supporting in a highly negative way – in BOW WOW, coming May 30 – is a bull shark. I had some experience with bull sharks during my spearfishing days long ago in the Bahamas. And at last I’m getting some mileage out of it!

Mrs. P: So the bull shark in BOW WOW has a name?

SQ: Mr. Nice Guy. It seemed right.

Mrs. P: Does Bowser encounter Mr. Nice Guy one on one?

SQ: No spoilers!

Mrs. P: Thanks, Spence! See you next month for more of What’s In A Name!

    Do I detect irony in that name?

    Good morning all.

    Mr. Nice Guy. Makes us want to sing ????. P.S. Is it wrong to want to hurt a bull shark?

    Good morning! I am wondering if Teddy RR got to stay with his best gal Zeta while his folks were in Greece. I am sure he is ready for them to get home.

    Hope all had a wonderful mother’s day! Sounds like Rio had the very best, as did Belle Star! What will Old Doc and Wee Nigel do without her???

    Think of the choices Ole Doc and Wee Nigel will make for the kennel. No Mama Luna, no Belle Starr to be their conscience. Can you say, “havoc “?

    We can’t help but Remember Chet’s Infamous Encounter in Bayou Country with his own version of Mr. Nice Guy. It still gives us Chills to think about it.

    BooBear: We were Wondering the same thing! Are Teddy and Zeta paling around whilst his Folks are in Greece?

    Havoc in the Kennel with the Thieves in Charge? Belle Starr may be away on the Glacier, but don’t forget…Mama Luna still oversees things and they all know it.

    You have a point.

    Actually two of our best friends who simply adore Teddy have stayed at our house with him while we are gone. They were also the ones who stayed with him when we went to Australia a while back. I suspect though that Miss Zeta has been around to visit from time to time during our absence.

    Isn’t The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah? I believe I read that one.

    If you must know, we were rounding the bases, and getting ready to slide into havoc with Thieves! were cheering us when it happened—a p-mail from Luna from the Other Side of the Bridge. Talk about all knowing…
