Toni Buzzeo author of many, many excellent picture books was kind enough to talk to me about her new book When Sue Found Sue and a bit about writing in general. I’m thrilled and so grateful she was able to take some time and answer my questions. I hope you enjoy!

POP-UP Shakespeare contains an incredible amount of information and tons of interesting facts. Our authors have a great sense of humor, respect, and irreverence for Shakespeare. It’s a non-fiction book completely, but the guys are not afraid to give their opinion — and I love it all.
I truly cannot recommend I AM HERMES! highly enough. The energy, the pacing, the illustrations, the twists and surprises, the length of the book, that it’s told from Hermes’ perspective, the graphic-novel-in-a-picture-book format, the fact that it is completely hilarious, and how much you learn when reading it — is all brilliant.
In Trees: A Rooted History, the illustrations on each page are so carefully and delicately crafted that they give us a transcendent-like visual experience that evokes a sense of wonder and awe.
I’m deeply impressed with how this book uses the picture book format to translate the beauty and magnificence of trees in such a way that gives us a new perspective and new appreciation. The art deftly indulges our eyes and focuses our attention on how incredible trees are.

Like a deep breath, this book is short but puts you in the right frame of mind by gently reminding its readers that they, and the skin that envelopes them, are truly beautiful.
Here is a beautiful picture book that adeptly explores themes of jealousy, parting with friends, following your dreams, personal regrets, and the enduring power of friendship. It gently shows us human failings and the heartbreak that can follow, but that despite our flaws, true friendship can and does prevail.

I wanted my daughter to feel beautiful inside and out and know that she’s precious just the way she is, so I consciously started to look for tools to introduce the concept of self-worth and of self-acceptance but did not find anything.
