An Interview with Annette Schottenfeld
Meet Annette Schottenfeld! She’s On the Scene with a book . . . and a couple recipes! Annette isn’t just an expert baker, she’s a registered dietician! She writes for kids, and she also writes about food, nutrition, and fitness. She’s known for her secret recipe for Uglie Muffin. I don’t care if it’s ugly, as long as it’s YUMMY! Check out her interview, and her recipe for Rock ‘n Geode Cookies too!
When she’s not cooking or writing about food, Annette is into hip-hop dance and environmental issues. That’s how she found her first book idea, from an actual event that happened in Africa. Annette isn’t from Africa. She lives in New York with her husband, two kids, and dog Rupert. He thinks he’s a little rhino, sometimes, and he was glad to help her write her debut book.
This is Annette’s cover, for now! I can’t wait to see the real one! I’m imagining it from her book description – Obi is a little rhino, and drought-stricken Zimbabwe is just too hot for him. He tries to beat the heat with a mud bath, but he gets his snout stuck in one mess after another. You’ll have to read the book sometime later in 2019 to find out if Obi finally beats the heat.
Not only is Obi’s Mud Bath based on a real story, it has STEM connections and will be giving back to communities who have water issues like Obi’s home in Zimbabwe.

When I write, I can only have one voice in my head, mine. A little noise is fine. But too much, or worse yet, WORDS, and I must change rooms or pull out headphones. Then I can write on!
