Dancing between thin lines, thick lines and no lines! Illustrating emotions and energy with simple shapes. And designing characters that you can’t help loving. Ella Okstad is this episodes guest.

This week’s featured book is SOPHIE JOHNSON: UNICORN EXPERT, a brilliantly funny picture book about a unicorn hiding in plain sight and a little girl who is totally oblivious to his presence … despite being a self-proclaimed expert!

Ella Okstad is a Norwegian illustrator whose invisible cats, silly monsters and hidden unicorns have traveled the world.

Picturebooking is made possible through the generosity of our listeners. Thank you.
