Mike Curato, author illustrator of Little Elliot Fall Friends and illustrator of All The Way to Havana, stops by the podcast to talk about asking yourself the big questions, the vehicle through which we explore Cuban culture, and those days when the big city is just a little too much.
We invited some of Kelly Light’s friends (and their beloved book characters) to don Louise’s iconic red glasses and say a few words about what the art of friendship means to them to celebrate the release of LOUISE AND ANDIE: THE ART OF FRIENDSHIP.
This week we’re celebrating WORM LOVES WORM, a picture book from author J.J. Austrian and illustrator Mike Curato about two worms who are in love and wish to be married. Their friends are concerned about wedding details because, after all, this isn’t “how it’s always been done”. But now’s the chance to change how it’s always been done.
J.J. Austrian and Mike Curato, the author and illustrator respectively of Worm Loves Worm, stop by the podcast to talk about Pants-of-the-Month, having conversations with children through children’s books, and the impact of two worms falling in love.
Mike Curato, author illustrator of Little Elliot, Big Family, which is published by Henry Holt and Company, returns to the podcast to talk about setting a story in a time predating modern technology, seeing your character come to life with the help of Merrymakers, and celebrating the family that you have and the families that you make.
