About Bennett Treitler

Bennett Treitler

Bennett is a typical pre-teen boy. His favorite hobbies are playing Air Soft and video games, watching/filming YouTube videos, listening to his tunes, and playing sports like flag football, soccer, and baseball.  He is working towards his black belt in Tae Kwon Do and hopes to become an Eagle Scout someday.

Although he loves his puppy, he has a pretty serious collection of pigs, his favorite animal. If stranded on a deserted island, he could survive on rice, chicken wings, and chocolate.

Q & A with Bennett

Each of the chapters corresponds with the drawings. Since the potato represents vodka, it is good to have it fighting with the peanut to show the battles in the family and the genes. The chapter names peanut vs. potato represents a battle for attention, so I thought a fight in the ring made sense.

I would tell them to avoid alcohol. Never even start it. It’s all up to you and your choices. If your friends are pressuring you, tell them you are different than them. If they cannot understand it, they should not be your friends.

I hope that they take away that this gene is actually very serious that they should never activate it.
