Author Essay

B.G. Hennessy says, “I’ve always loved a good question. When I begin working on a book I start by looking for a question that a child would ask: What would happen if there was a dinosaur in my backyard? Sometimes the question is more practical: How do you build a road? When I am working on the Corduroy books I look for the right question for Corduroy: What should I get Lisa for her birthday? How can I find a home? What did happen to my missing button?  Once I find the right question I play with finding the right answer.”
