Bluebells & the magic of making a picture book
Pleased to chat with CBC Radio's Ainslie MacLellan about The Boy and the Blue Moon last weekend. Our talk is now up online and you can listen here.
Our conversation touched on enchantment and bluebells and magic. We talked about how illustrator Ashley Crowley lives in England and I live here in Canada and how strange it is to make something with someone you've never met. And about various references within the book's text and images to other books, particularly The Snowman by Raymond Briggs. And we talked about how much I'd like to go to England and visit a bluebell wood.
