Rachel Noble, Assistant Director at the Carnegie Center, recently directed me to a great interview from the Bob Edwards Show that she heard over the weekend.
"Bob talks to Jon Scieszka, the recently named first National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. He's also the author of several bestselling children’s books, including “The Stinky Cheese Man,” which won a Caldecott Honor medal, and he's the founder of Guys Read, a nonprofit literacy organization. Then, writer and illustrator Brian Selznick's Invention of Hugo Cabret is easily the biggest book to ever win a Caldecott award. At over 500 pages, half of them illustrations, Selznick wrote a book about a boy living inside a Paris train station. Bob talks with Selznick about his recent win and about the marriage between illustrations and words."
There’s a podcast available online.
