Thoughts from Hélène Boudreau


Picture Book Writing Process: How Hélène Boudreau Wrote I DARE YOU NOT TO YAWN (Candlewick Press)

 It's gloomy outside. Time for a little break from my artwork.

I have yet to read I Dare You Not to Yawn but I wanted to share this article from a pretty awesome blog called Inkygirl

Hélène Boudreau creates stories for picture books and Young Adults. That's an impressive combo. It was interesting to read about the process of picture book writing from the writer's point of view. She talks about the evolution process of the book and I like the fact that she was very honest about the entire process. I love, love the simple illustrations by Serge Bloch, french artist. Days like this makes me excited about picture books, art and illustration.
