Today’s mail brought the October issue of Cricket magazine, with “Heart’s Desire,” my bookish Cinderella story, therein. The illustrator, Amy Koltun, did a lovely job, with some really nice small touches. I especially like the family photos–of Cinderella’s old family, and of her new one; and the closing illustration–which it would be something of a spoiler to describe.
I love having stories illustrated. It’s a delight to see someone take my words, reinterpret them, bring something of their own to them, and turn them into something new.
