We asked LeUyen Pham to tell us about her favorite children’s book; she did us one better and told us her favorite picture book and her favorite chapter book:
Picture book: Where’s Wallace? by Hilary Knight. Just because because because. I’ve spent my life trying to illustrate a book that makes me feel the way that book did as a kid.
Chapter book: The Westing Game. Someday I will write something that rivals that…
