Interview with Giselle Potter

Monday, February 16, 2009.

Some authors and illustrators have a knack for weaving personal experiences and family history into children’s books.  The written and illustrated stories compliment each other in a way that invites the reader to be a part of the book.

On this edition, author/illustrator Giselle Potter talks about how her life experiences have influenced her style, offers thoughts on effective journaling and the challenge of making a personal experience interesting for others.

Among our favourite books by Giselle Potter:

Loot-Retrieving Girl-Power: Kate and the Beanstalk
