Rock Stars of Reading part 11: Jeff Mack

Wednesday, April 22, 2009.

Perhaps more intriguing than books themselves is the story behind them; how they were conceived, how they were picked up by a publishing company and how they were edited.  Author/illustrator Jeff Mack has many incredible stories to tell from his young career and he took the time to share many of the stories and explain his creative process to us.

We particularly enjoyed how he engaged with Lucy and Bayla and how they may have had an influence on a creative decision for his upcoming book, Dog Wants to Play, due out September 3, 2009 (author: Christine McDonnell).

I LOVE his work and it was really, really nice to hear in his own words about his inspiration, his story and his process. Thank you for sharing.
