What do you love about kid lit?

It’s such a privilege to write for and engage with young people, particularly picture book readers; that window of development when a child is as open to magic as they are to learning something new feels unlike any other stage in our reading life and I find the work that goes into considering the best way to create for that age group endlessly fascinating.

Giovanni is a true story — what inspired you to write it?
