Listen to the lovely interview, on the original blog post, giving the backstory of how Myrtle the Purple Turtle came into existence and ended up being Illustrated and published…
Cynthia Reyes and her daughter Lauren Reyes Grange talk about Cynthia’s new book, Myrtle the Purple Turtle, which was inspired by an experience her 4-year old daughter had at school. As with all her books so far, Myrtle originated in Cynthia’s family. Cynthia’s books for adults are about unusual homes, the people who love them, and the life events connected to these places. Her picture book, Myrtle the Purple Turtle, was written for her daughter many years ago but can now be shared with children all over the world.
