As a child, he spent much of his time drawing and stapling stories into little books. His path to eventually becoming a children’s book author and illustrator — and ambassador of learning — included stops as a police officer, restaurant worker, real estate agent and farm worker.
On this edition of Just One More Book, Mark speaks with Simon James about illustrations as a tool for creative development, single books that become book series and the globalization of children’s literature.
As a bonus, at the very end of this podcast, Mr. James tells the story of how his book Baby Brains came to be.
