In this week’s Portable Magic, I interview award-winning picture book author, Corinne Fenton about her beautiful work, extensive research process and her relationship with her books’ illustrators. Corinne also shares her vital ingredient to creating a successful picture book.

Corinne is renowned for her heart-warming picture books, including My Friend Tertius, Queenie, One Elephant’s Story and Little Dog & The Christmas Wish which starred in the Myer Christmas window display.

Her latest book is To the Bridge, the Journey of Lennie and Ginger Mick, illustrated by the legendary Andrew McLean.

Corinne is such a talented writer, and an all-round gorgeous soul.
