Elizabeth Rose StantonWhy did you choose to submit this art?
My little chicken character, Henny, really wanted some advance attention, so she kept poking me to be in the show (which, with those little fingers of hers, she can). Henny will fly the coop on January 7, thanks to Simon & Schuster/Paula Wiseman Books––and she'll launch herself at Secret Garden Books on that very date, at 7:00 p.m. I hope you all will come!
What does being part of SCBWI mean to you?
Pretty much everything, since I wouldn't be here without it. It's truly been the wind beneath my wings (or, in Henny's case, arms!)
What is your favorite picture book from childhood?
I can't think back that far.
Fun fact: Elizabeth has a degree in architecture. Learn more, and see more images, on STQRY here.
