This morning over at Kirkus, I’ve got a joint Q&A. Author Janice N. Harrington and illustrator Brian Pinkney talk with me about Busy-Busy Little Chick, their new collaboration from Farrar, Straus and Giroux (released last month).
Harrington’s story is based on a fable told by the Nkundo people of Central Africa, and she talks to me about the research that went into the book, while Pinkney weighs in on his artistic choices for the book’s vibrant illustrations.
That link is here. Next week here at 7-Imp, I’ll follow up with some (more) illustrations from the book.
Until tomorrow …
