Picture Books Reading Themes When Words are Not Enough

Coffee and Conversation with a Book Artist

It is truly such a privilege to spend time with the lovely book artist, Suzy Lee. We have featured her for our Wordless Picture Book Special last April, and today I returned all her books (with great heaviness in my heart). Here is the four-part feature that we have done on Suzy:

She is truly such a gracious, kind, and a very down-to-earth artist. I think I talked her ear off, earlier. Haha. I had a wonderful time, Suzy. Looking forward to spending more time with you during the Asian Festival of Children’s Content this May 2011.
With Suzy Lee. Thank you so much for your time, Suzy. And your beautiful books.

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
