Books on Film: In the Studio with Emily Gravett
Everyone, hold up your coffees. I’d like to propose a toast.

This year all the finalists for the Kate Greenaway and Carnegie medals (the prestigious English children’s illustration and writing awards) were interviewed on film about their books. You can see them all by clicking here.
But there was one interview that immediately jumped out to me – that of inventive picture book creator Emily Gravett. In the series of short videos below, Gravett explains the making of her book Again! In the process, we learn more about the craft of the picture book.
