This is one of the most delightful conversations we’ve ever had on the Read-Aloud Revival podcast!
I’m talking today with Helen Oxenbury, author and illustrator, about creating picture books – from where she gets her ideas, to the supplies she uses to draw animals (and the cutest darn babies around) and more.
- which books Helen read to her own 3 children
- what it’s been like working with her husband, author and illustrator John Burningham (the creator of the Mr. Gumpy series)
- how Helen chooses different media to create atmosphere in her beautiful books
Grab the kids for this one – Helen is sharing tips for young illustrators in this absolutely charming discussion.
