Julie has illustrated several of my Very Short Stories. This is the only one (so far) illustrated as its own book. The others are all in single page or single spread format. When we approach illustrating a new story, Julie always asks, “What do you want?” and I always say, “I want you to illustrate what comes to mind when you read the story.” Whenever I work with an artist or graphic designer, they always produce something better than whatever I thought to ask. Working with Julie, I just let her start with her own ideas, and I always love the results! One of her ideas with this story is a separate story-within-the-story that plays out on the right-facing text page (the restrictions of ebook formatting haven’t allowed us to include them there).
