Marla Frazee – The Farmer and The Monkey

A short message featured on the Kate Messner episode

A picture book author-illustrator tip

Listen to Marla Frazee talk about making her Farmer Trilogy and think about the dedication and stamina it took to tell this story.

Think about what you were doing when she started that first book.

Then review your ideas. Are you willing to put in the time needed to see them through? Will the story be strong enough to withstand the long hours, weeks, months, and years to see it to completion?

I’ll stop typing so you can listen and then get back to doing the hard work of sharing your ideas with the world!

Is THE FARMER AND THE MONKEY a good book for you to study … for your kids to enjoy?
