Why make picture books starring a weasel?
Well, for one, “weasel” is a fun word. Weasel. Weasel!
Say it slowly; stretch it out. “WHEEEEEE-zzulllll!”
Okay, now say it three times fast.

Also, weasels are delightful to look at. Watch this Youtube clip of Ozzy the Weasel and dare to tell us you aren’t entertained:
Finally,we wanted to pair the boy in our story with a pet that would be the complete opposite of him. A weasel, we thought, would be a good catalyst to shake up the boy’s staid existence and trigger his adventurous side.
In Once Upon a Weasel, the boy buys this special pet who is as full of energy as the boy is regimented. In future books, the boy and weasel have some pretty amazing adventures together.
