A while back, we invited two world famous animal experts to answer YOUR questions about orangutans and elephants. They are both featured in the IMAX movie, Born to be Wild 3D coming to theaters today, and they have a lot to say about saving the planet and the beautiful creatures that live here. Read on. . .
First, your questions about orangutans for Dr. Galdikas. . .
The Megamind DVD comes out on Friday, February 25, and to celebrate, we have an exclusive interview with Megamind’s evil sidekick, Minion. A few weeks ago, you asked your questions, and now Minion himself is here to tell his side of the story.
GNOletsgo1 asks: Dear, Minion, do you eat fish food or bananas? Or both? I am curious.
Minion: Heaping portions of both. In fact, I have a killer recipe for a Banana Fish Split. Here it is:
I promise you, tastes EVEN BETTER than it sounds.
R asks: Minion, what do you like to do in your free time?
Minion: As a Minion, I live to serve my master. But even I need my days off. Usually on my own time, I focus on my favorite hobby: Doing volunteer work for my master.
Dewdrop208 asks: Do you ever doubt Megamind when it comes to his harebrained ideas?
Minion: HA! That’s a trick question. Megamind doesn’t have any hair. He’s totally bald.
Yoshi asks: Do you ever get lonely?
No, but I once got really homesick – but it’s only because I misplaced my gorilla body in the garage.
51dotfeg asks: Do you wish you weren’t a fish? Do you wish you were a human? Or a Wizard? A dog? or a mouse?
Minion: I hadn’t thought about that before. But now I want to be a wizard fish. . . with a pet dog!
Cutieu123 asks: Do you ever feel underrated, unappreciated, or a fish out of water (excuse the pun, please)? Do you think you deserve more credit like Megamind?
Minion: Well, part of being the sidekick is not getting credit when a plan succeeds. But at least I don’t get blamed when a plan goes wrong. . . oh, wait. Yes I do!
StarMagic asks: What does it feel like being a hero/protector in Metro City? Thank you. : )
Minion: It’s definitely better than being a villain. Now people throw flowers instead of rotten fruit.

Hi everyone! It seems like ten years ago that I interviewed Margaret Peterson Haddix for THE STACKS. You all helped me prepare for the interview by giving me some awesome questions! Sadly, I couldn’t ask them all. It was really tough to choose only one of your questions, but the final question I chose was submitted by marytonga, who asked:
Margaret was really impressed with that question and I think she had fun answering it.
She is super, super nice and fun, but the best part is that, after the interview, she autographed 2 copies of Into the Gauntlet so that we could give them away to lucky STACKS readers! Want a chance to win? Enter the Into the Gauntlet Sweepstakes! Good luck!
UPDATE: Hiccup replied! You can read his answers to your questions here.

Anyway, now is your chance to ask about his experiences with wild dragons, his misunderstood life among the barbaric Vikings, and how his life has changed since the movie made him a star.
