Welcome to an all-new feature on the Literaticast: BEHIND THE BOOK, in which we take a deep dive into the backstory behind the making of one fascinating book. Up for discussion today is ROAR LIKE A DANDELION by Ruth Krauss, Illustrated by Sergio Ruzzier, published by HarperCollins. Ruth Krauss was one of the foremost children's authors of the 20th century, and ROAR is a long-lost manuscript that has just been published for the first time. I speak to HarperCollins editor Nancy Inteli, who rediscovered the manuscript; Children's Book Historian Philip Nel, who is an expert on Ruth Krauss; and illustrator Sergio Ruzzier, who brought the story to life. If you like children's book history and the art of the Picture Book, you won't want to miss this episode.
