Kathryn DennisWhy did you choose to submit your particular piece of art?
It is a final scene in a picture book I am working on. Urban birds are having to change their tunes to be heard above the city noise. The birds have gathered in one tree and for the first time, the loudest sound in the city is the birdsong.
What does being part of SCBWI mean to you?
It has been like a mentor. I have learned what to do and, more importantly, what not to do.
What is your favorite picture book from childhood?
Frederick, by Leo Lionni. I love that a little mouse stored memories of sunshine, colors, and words to survive the winter.
