Up the Stairs

Up the Stairs (1994) Post 392

Up the Stairs is a rhyming picture book, remarkable in that it was illustrated by someone I'm friends with in real life. Lucinda and our friend Amanda get together every so often for lunch. It's pure coincidence that Lucinda illustrated one of my books as we didn't know one another at the time.
This is a simple story about a child going up the stairs and meeting a variety of creatures on the way.


Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. 2017 is now behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books, so the blog will continue for at least the next month or so.
