Beating the Drum for Women's Rights KIRKUS review

Grateful for the KIRKUS interview Julie Danielson did with Margarita Engle and myself about the creation of DRUM DREAM GIRL. She is a writer who interviews and features the work of authors and illustrators at her blog Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast. This is a children's literature blog focused on illustration and picture books. In a 2011 interview at Seven Impossible Things I had the chance to sit down with Jules and had a lot of fun talking about children's book illustration.
