Interview with Henrik Drescher

Monday, June 16, 2008.

Henrik DrescherAs with many creative disciplines, some children’s book creators produce works that are more artistic in nature — books that have limited commercial appeal. Those are the authors with small yet loyal fan base and you’re missing out by not knowing about them.

One such example is author and illustrator, Henrik Drescher, creator of many children’s books including Turbulence: A Log Book, Simon’s Book and Hubert the Pudge: A Vegetarian Tale, and illustrator of books by Judy Sierra and Eric Metaxas.

On this edition of Just One More Book!!, Henrik Drescher speaks with Mark about his book McFig and McFly: A Tale of Jealousy, Revenge and Death (with a Happy Ending), storytelling mojo and the privilege of being a children’s book creator.

A veneer of feigned pleasantries can’t conceal the ceaseless, senseless competition that corrupts then consumes former friends in this deliciously absurd yet apt demonstration of misguided attention and life misspent.
