Bill Motchen a features reporter for St. Louis Jewish Light has written a special article about my journey with illustrator Dayne Sislen to create and publish our picture book, "There's a Mouse on My Head!". Here is a link to the entire article written by Mr. Motchen: "Poem Launches Friends into "Jungle" of Kids' Books".
Here is a short quote:
"Warwick began her journey into the world of children’s books when she attended a critique session held by the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
“Donna brought a poem to read,” Sislen said. “And I said, ‘I really like this, I think it could be a picture book.’ ”
Thus, a collaboration, partnership and friendship was born.
“Mouse!” is the story of a special relationship between a grandparent and a grandchild. The grandmother is the protagonist. She’s a caring caregiver, a tough but cagey disciplinarian. The grandchild is the antagonist. He’s a clever kid who has no intention of eating his peas but has no such issues with pie.
A stuffed mouse comes to life, and a wisecracking sister enters the picture. High jinks ensue, and lessons are learned."
