Eric Rohmann Talks About “Bone Dog”

Eric Rohmann Talks About “Bone Dog”

Writer, Kathi Appelt, interviews illustrator and writer, Eric Rohmann, about his new picture book,

 BONE DOG.

A wonderful insider view. Eric talks about the difficulties of writing a picture book for young readers and listeners in which the dog dies on page five.

Enjoy!
