    It is so great to know that Jon Klassen agonizes over his writing decisions and sometimes has to go back and start over. Very encouraging! Thank you!

    I found it fascinating how much meaning is in the details…whether in the choice of how characters are portrayed, or drawn, or given dialogue. Thanks for this interview, and all others…such insight into writing and illustrating for children!
