Behind the Book: Afraid of the Light

27 April 2021

April has not only bloomed all things spring, but has triggered the beginning of re-entering the world after a year of holing up in our respective caves. We thought there was no better book to celebrate this month than Afraid of the Light (Bala Kids), a story we all (no matter how old) can resonate with as welcome change comes to the surface. We had the opportunity to chat with Bright Artist Flavia Sorrentino about her process in illustrating this book, and personal fears she has overcome. We hope you enjoy, and are inspired to get out of your comfort zone this spring!

Behind the Book Blog: Doggo and Pupper

30 March 2021

Doggo and Pupper (Macmillan) graced shelves last week, and has received much deserved praise. Bright Artist Charlie Alder’s “bark-out-loud illustrations” (School Library Journal) bring a human-like sincerity to three unlikely friends Dog, Pupper, and Cat. Nestled in her at-home studio over a cup of coffee, Alder brought this story to life through purposeful expressions and body language. We had the pleasure of learning about all it took to create this book with the one and only Charlie Alder!
