I really enjoyed my radio interview yesterday live with Michael Paynter from WBKE/The Beehive from Manchester University. Michael and I talked about what inspires children to read, how books can offer a positive form of escape from the world we live in, and also teach children that it’s okay to dream. During our talk, we touched on how animated and narrated eBooks or apps with music are changing the landscape of the children’s picture book market by bringing stories to life in a way that conventional books can’t. I have to admit that I had a good chuckle when Michael referred to me as the “Future Mrs. Dr. Seuss.” What a lovely compliment, and wouldn’t creating that kind of revered literary works be something that most authors only dare to dream about? I’ll keep dreaming, but thank you, Michael!

Here’s the taped feed from my interview with Michael Paynter, 89.5 “The Buzz”.

And, would the real Mrs. Dr. Seuss, please stand up.

Speaking of which, here's more on the real, Mrs. Dr. Seuss.  It's kind of a sad story.  http://objectwisdom.blogspot.com/2009/12/more-on-mrs-dr-seuss.html
