More than the sum
by little red pen
This video features Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler talking about how they have worked on children’s books together over the last 20 years. The conversation has a really gentle, reflective tone — just the thing if your day’s a bit frazzled. Partly it’s the voices, partly it’s Scheffler painting as they talk. Like a good children’s book, the combination of words and art is more than the sum of its parts. Magic.
