Creating picture books with Cassy Polimeni & Briony Stewart
The Garden at the End of the World is a gorgeous new picture book written by Cassy Polimeni & illustrated by Briony Stewart. The pair join me to chat all about picture books and how it works when a book is written and illustrated by two different people.
Cassy Polimeni is a freelance editor and children’s/YA author who has always loved words and faraway places. Her past jobs include travel writer, magazine editor, TV book reviewer and airport chauffeur. The Garden at the End of the World is her first picture book. In 2022 she was awarded an Australian Society of Authors/Copyright Australia Mentorship to develop a middle grade novel, also set in Norway.
Briony Stewart is the author and illustrator of several award-winning books for children, including the ‘Kumiko and the Dragon’ series and ‘We Love You Magoo’ which was a CBCA Early Childhood Honour Book for 2020.
