I’m so excited to be the first author of this new Canadian publishing company! I’m so excited that I want to start rhyming. I had no idea how much work went into the book after I finished writing it. It’s been a steep learning curve. But when I held my book for the first time, it was almost surreal. Does anyone else feel like that? Like there has been a warp in the space-time continuum and suddenly a book has popped into existence? It’s a wonderful feeling but also scary. I hope the children (and the parents!) who read the book, understand everything I was trying to say and convey. Time will tell. The illustrations for “My Daddy has One Leg” are amazing and the little sock monkeys are the best! Although the most poignant images to me are the looks on the monkeys’ faces when they are feeling sad or confused – how is it possible that I feel so much from a little monkey face?! So grateful to the illustrator, Ren.
