Behind the Book: The Proudest Blue

18 December 2019

As 2019 comes to an end, we reflect on all of the wonderful projects that have published over the last twelve months. It has been an especially busy year for Bright artist Hatem Aly! We were thrilled to chat with Hatem about his creative process behind his latest picture book, The Proudest Blue, which published with Little, Brown Books for Young Readers in September 2019. Written by Olympic medalist Ibtihaj Muhammad and Morris Award finalist S.K. Ali, The Proudest Blue is an uplifting, universal story of new experiences, the unbreakable bond between siblings, and of being proud of who you are. Since its publication, it has received abundant praise from reviewers including starred reviews from Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, Booklist, and School Library Journal, and quickly earned a spot on the New York Times Best Sellers List. We caught up with Hatem about how he connected with the book on a personal level and the illustrations that brought this powerful book to life.
