Nancy Willards gift for bringing out the whimsical in all of us illuminates this memorable anthology.
" Who Invented Water? " celebrates the craft and magic of creating childrens books. In "Becoming a Writer," Willard admits she dislikes giving and receiving advice. She prefers telling a story, with real-life characters ranging from members of her own family to Jane Austen, Rainer Maria Rilke, and Charles Dickens on stilts. "The Well-tempered Falsehood" explores the fabulist art of storytelling; "The Rutabaga Lamp" is a dreamy, delightful riff on how to read and write fairy tales.
In an autobiographical piece, "Her Fathers House," Erica, Theo, and their three-year-old son travel home for the funeral of Ericas father. As the whole family gathers, the heroine is hit with an onslaught of memories, Willard style. "The Tailor Who Told the Truth" is Morgon Axel, who tells nothing but lies . . . until the day a wild boar comes into his shop.
This ebook includes an introduction by Robert Pack, former director of the Bread Loaf Writers Conference.
