Q: What is Mandy's Pet Shop?
A: First and foremost, it's a pet shop full of lovable monsters.... But it's also a place for kids to explore and to feel welcome!
Q: How did you two come up with this concept?
A: We were in the process of pitching a show actually when the pandemic happened. Our plan was put on hold, but it gave us a chance to step back. We asked ourselves: What are kids going to do during this? How will they stay entertained? We both have younger sisters, so we were inspired to make a book for them. Both of our sisters are odd in the best way... Which is why a pet shop for monsters seemed like the perfect fit!
