Wouldn't this look GREAT in your library or classroom?
"You are illustrating somebody else's words, so you have to go by the story and, you know, you can't go off on a tangent. But Kate was great. She gave me very minimal character descriptions. So for example, there are two elderly sisters that live next to the Watsons named the Lincoln sisters. And the only description I got for those characters from Kate was that they're really old and they're really thin. And so that's why I went… And so she really gave me free reign to sort of design these characters as I see fit." - Chris Van Dusen
