Maker of Things (Meet the Author Series)

by Denise Fleming, Karen Bowers (Illustrator)

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
One of the world's most beloved children's author/illustrator, Denis Fleming, shares her life story with her fans in this book. From her childhood in Ohio, visiting her grandmothers and the art museum, to her love of making things, Fleming shares the journey that brought her to write her books. As always in the "Meet the Author" series, the reader is allowed access to the writing process. Fleming writes, "There were always books in my head that I wanted to share. But I was always more comfortable making art than writing. Writing has so many rules and I was worried I'd make a mistake." Fleming uses hundreds of words and ideas to piece together the simple language in her books. Illustrations for her books are inspired by Fleming's many pets. Finally, Fleming lets her fans in on her simple paper-making technique called "pulp- painting." This process makes Fleming's illustrations truly wonder-filled for readers of every age. 2002, Richard Owen Publishers Inc,
