Wednesday Q & J: December 20, 2023

Q: Your first picture book published was SEE THIS LITTLE LINE. You have a book called SEE THIS LITTLE DOT coming out in 2024. Are they related? Tell us about the connection.

J: Absolutely related. But the many years between means the illustrations are not by the same person (I do not even know if that first illustrator is even alive today as we are talking about 1962!!) which makes the books VERY disimmilar. Also, I think I have learned enough over the years to make this second book much  more clever than the first–more word play and a dynamite last line.
