The collaboration experience between author and illustrator in making a children’s book is always unique, and this process of collaboration – the give-and-take between two artists – contributes to the finished project. The Hungry Garden, by Leanne Sype, is an in-process children’s book that features a garden-to-table concept and presents in simple terms the ideas of growing, harvesting, preparing and eating a diverse variety of fruits, vegetables and herbs. It is an alphabet book comprised of 26 garden scenes and 26 kitchen or dining scenes, for which I have been asked to provide the illustrations. In addition, each letter of the alphabet will include a child-friendly recipe. Collaboration is often at the heart of a successful children’s book. Although collaboration can take many forms, what every successful collaboration has in common is that each yields a unique result in which each participant’s contributions complements the others.
