Won Ton and Chopstick
A Cat and Dog Tale Told in Haiku
In this interview we celebrate Lee Wardlaw's writing career, over thirty books ranging from board books to YA, with over a million copies sold! We focus on two of her many books, Won Ton and Chopstick: A Cat and Dog Tale Told in Haiku (Henry Holt, 2015) and First Steps (Harperfestival, 1999). We discuss her new award for children's books in which cats play a role, and her sage advice for authors hoping to get their stories published.
