Today I am so pleased to share my interview with debut picture book creator Saki Tanaka! Her first book is called Between Words: A Friendship Tale, and Saki graciously takes us on a deep-dive (pun intended!) of her process with lots of process images to share. Please enjoy! About the book: Kai is used to following the seasons with Pa, from place to new place where people speak languages unfamiliar to his ears. When they finally settle in a valley full of pools, Kai tries to invite the other children to join in his play, but the strangeness of his words drives them away. Frustrated, he ..read more

I am so excited to share today's interview with Bo Lu about her debut picture book Bao's Doll! This is a hugely personal book for Bo, so it was an absolute honor to pick her brain about how it all came together. Enjoy a peek at Bo's process with me!

So when Bao desperately wants a doll––specifically, the beautiful, blonde All-American Artist Amanda doll that everyone else has––Bao takes matters into he ..read more
