Share a special moment as Janet and sister, Susan, discuss how they create their wonderful stories and pictures.  For fans of Cook-A-Doodle-Doo!, And the Dish Ran Away With the Spoon, and now, The Great Fuzz Frenzy, this exclusive presentation includes conversations with Janet and Susan, talking about what life was like growing up and how they came together as a great storytelling team.  The program also includes a special feature -- The Squirrel Sisters -- with original art and music. 

From Spoken Arts in collaboration with Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel.

This 17 minute SpotLight Video is the first of its kind. No other "author bio" weaves so many threads together: 

  • The collaboration thread reveals how Janet and  Susan work together to create a story 
  • The writing thread talks about the writing process: starting with ideas . . .  working the ideas into a story with a beginning, middle, and end sending it off to the editor--"The Little Red Pen" rewriting and revising and sending it off again to LRP... more rewriting and revising . . . .
  • The story thread tells the tale of two squirrel sisters and is loosely based on the Stevens sisters' life.    
  • The biography thread tracks the real sisters as they grow up to become writer and illustrator.
