Greg Pizzoli, author illustrator most recently of The Quest for Z: The True Story of Explorer Percy Fawcett and a Lost City in the Amazon, returns to the podcast to talk about a time and a place and a culture that wasn’t kind to people around the world.
Kelly DiPucchio and Greg Pizzoli, author and illustrator of Dragon Was Terrible, stop by the podcast to talk about making kids livid while reading aloud, a story beginning to tell itself, and being surprised by the voice that comes out while writing a first draft.
Greg Pizzoli creates some of my favorite picture books and his latest story GOOD NIGHT OWL is no exception. We talk about the world he has been developing with these stories and how he weaves himself and his characters throughout each story.
This is the time of year reflecting and hoping. For dreaming. And for wishing. Even if our kids don’t mark time the way we do or feel the fresh start of a new year peeking around the corner, there’s something inherently kid about the humble wish.
