Newt’s Apprentice (also known as Em) is a 20(mumble mumble)-year-old who works at a zoo. They don’t pay her; she just turns up every week and hopes that they’ll let her cuddle the wild animals. Sometimes they do. One day she will get paid to cuddle wild animals. In the meantime, she will continue to turn up at the zoo and write about her cuddling experiences. Occasionally she might write about other things, too.
