Last year, we had the honor of being asked to participate in the 2nd Annual Saugatuck StoryFest at The Westport Library in Westport, CT. The Library's Children's Department hosted a day's worth of interactive experiences with picture book authors, so Ed and I brought along our newest title (at the time) "Where's the Bathroom?"
Also participating in the event was fellow children's writer Karlin Grey, who presented her title, "Serena: The Littlest Sister". Upon meeting her, she informed us that she runs a blog that hosts a Q&A section with authors and illustrators. She offered the chance to participate in her "Five Favorites" section, in which she asks guests to outline their favorite books, places to write/draw, even our mentors.
We jumped at the chance! Karlin was a pleasure to meet and love a good reason to write about ourselves!
So without further explanation or semi-relevant gifs that I simply added because Falkor rules, read our FIVE FAVORITES, here. (If you had to guess who Ed's rhyming books mentor is, who would you guess?)
