I had a great time yesterday meeting 3rd- 5th graders at Bullock School who are part of the Mini Imani reading program in Montclair. They had lots of great suggestions and questions. (“Why is Gaston bald?” “Can book 2 be about Zubair?”)
Answers: Gaston is bald because that’s how Rafael envisioned him. (Or Maybe Raf couldn’t pick a hairstyle. Raf?); Book 2 is not going to be totally about Zubair although he’s going to play a big part in it. Rafael and I do have an adventure we’d love to tell with Zubair but that’s probably a ways off.
