Lisa Congdon

We’re very pleased to welcome Lisa Congdon to The Children’s Book Review today. Lisa is an incredibly talented painter and designer much in demand these days. Her latest book Imogen, written by Amy Novesky (see our interview here), details the great passion Imogen Cunningham committed to her groundbreaking photography and her three growing boys. It’s a treat to carefully study the boldly painted illustrations Lisa has created in the book. We’re delighted to share our chat about becoming an artist, unusual animals, and all things Imogen!

Oliver Jeffers describes himself as “a maker of art,” but he’s really much more than this. He’s kind of a genius Jack of all trades. He’s an extraordinary painter, designer, and author of many award-winning picture books including most recently The New Sweater and Stuck. His latest picture book This Moose Belongs to Me concerns the trials and tribulations with ownership, antlers, and the rules of being a good pet. Oliver has also just released a monograph of his paintings cheekily entitled Neither Here Nor There. We’re honored to feature his thoughts on writing, illustrating, and bookmaking in The Children’s Book Review.
