Today the spotlight is shining on debut author, Alison Paige, who will be sharing her publishing journey.
This spotlight features an interview with the author of a picture book and simplified board book that has really resonated with me. In these mirrored books, a mixed race girl is wondering why her skin colour is different to both her parents. Through a metaphor of painting, Tania and illustrator, Vanja, show Violet’s journey of identity and being proud to be who she is.
I’m delighted to be sharing a review and fascinating interview with author/illustrator Victoria Cassnell about her charming debut picture book The Grizzly Itch which was published earlier this week.
Amanda Addison tells us about the inspiration behind her debut picture book Boundless Sky and her writing journey.
I’m delighted to be interviewing Samuel Narh, author of Maisie’s Scrapbook. A joyful celebration of a mixed-race family and the love that binds us all together.
The Kindness Kangaroo Project is a series of twenty-six picture books, written by Sandra Wilson and illustrated by children. Each one features a different animal showcasing a different emotion. Sandra is half-way through the project and in this Spotlight Feature shares her insights from the project.
