In this episode of the Picturebooking Podcast we celebrate picture book month by having New York Times bestselling author and illustrator Peter Brown on the show. I know I’m suppose to say glowing things about Peter and his stories, but let me keep it short. He is a great storyteller and despite being a Philadelphia Eagles fan he seems like a good guy.
One disclaimer … we don’t talk about Creepy Carrot or the Caldecott Honor. I love his picture books (The Curious Garden, Children Make Terrible Pets, Mr. Tiger Goes Wild and My Teacher is a Monster! No I’m Not.) and we didn’t get to Creepy Carrots. But just so you know, that I know, these things happened.
