What The Hills?!


Jul 18, 2021

Today on What The Hills we're asking the question "what does it take to create a great picture book?"

Mandy Foot has an amazing artistic talent, so it isn't surprising that she found herself studying design and illustration at university.  She eventually found herself illustrating children's picture books, and loving it.  Her strong empathy with animals led her to create art starring some of her favourite animals along the way. 

But then, Mandy wanted more.  Today on What The Hills, Mandy shares the story of how she ended up writing her own picture books, via a long and interesting journey which could be a book in its own right, complete with sudden twists, travel, and even real live dragons.
