Clare Walters: “Picturebooks open doors into new worlds, both familiar and unknown”

“All the picturebooks I have written have a verbal text, but it’s true that books without words can be ‘read’ in different ways. That’s because each person brings their own ideas and knowledge to the story and interprets the pictures in their own way. However, in practice how wide that interpretation will be is often dependent on how closely the story is illustrated. (…) It all depends on how many clues the illustrator chooses to provide.” – interviewed by: ORA MUŠĆET
