Illustrated by Sebastien Braun
What fun I had working on this book, enjoying the rhymes and the silliness. And loving the illustrator. Met him in London after the book came out. Thought we had decided on doing a second book and then things fell seriously apart. He didn’t like my second book or was on the move to another publisher or something. The publisher asked for a revision which I gave them. And then a second revision which I also gave them. They said they were looking for a different illustrator. And that was, oh, seven or eight years or more ago. All the editors have left. That’s publishing. I still like Dimity.
