075: Gilbert Ford – The Marvelous Things That Come From Nonfiction Picture Books

Posted by on Mar 8, 2017 in Chatting

Gilbert Ford is the author and illustrator of some amazing nonfiction picture books about toys, fairs and war.

The first book we talk about is Gilbert’s author-illustrator nonfiction debut, THE MARVELOUS THING THAT CAME FROM A SPRING. So get ready to learn about the story behind your favorite childhood toy.

Then we discuss his illustrations in Debbie Levy’s SOLDIER SONG: A TRUE STORY OF THE CIVIL WAR. And I sneak in some Chicago’s World Fair talk with the first nonfiction book he illustrated MR. FERRIS AND HIS WHEEL.
