Thank you, Pamela Kramer, for interviewing me about my debut as an author and illustrator. See the result of said interview with Pamela, and a link to the full interview below:
In “Don’t Blink!” Tom Booth takes a childhood game of staring and cleverly has the main character in the book, a cute girl with huge brown eyes (appropriate for staring), engage in a staring contest with not only many wild animals, but the reader of the book.
Yes, the child to whom this book is being read (or who is reading it alone) is part of the story. The animals join to girl one by one, and finally there is a large group all staring at…the reader.
