I just finished a story for my grandson, Red. He’s just had a little sister, and while I’m sure he’s excited about having a new sibling, I thought he might appreciate a gift just for him. Since he’s currently obsessed by Pirates and Squids I thought I’d tailor a story to my audience, so I wrote The Pirate & The Squid. The plan is to illustrate it with a) Pirate Lego, b) Fuzzy Felts, or c) some illustrations by Phebe, my daughter, and to put together a one-off book for Red.
My daughter-in-law Becky read him the story for the first time yesterday, and then interviewed him about it. He’s quite a demanding audience, as you’ll see, but at least he liked the story arc.
