Interview with Alexis O’Neill and Laura Huliska-Beith

Monday, October 20, 2008.

Alexis O'Neill and Laura Huliska-BeithIn our family, a book needs more than just a great story to be engaging. The words and images need to be tightly connected with each other and yet tell slightly different story lines at the same time. That kind of magic doesn’t just happen because two immensely creative people are producing the words and text.

On this edition of Just One More Book!!, Mark speaks with author Alexis O’Neill and illustrator Laura Huliska-Beith about their first collaboration, The Recess Queen, and their new book, The Worst Best Friend.
