In it, Alex talks about the filmic quality of the story, and her love of animation. Of course when the interview was done, I hadn’t told her we were planning a miniature animation as a trailer for the book. If you haven’t seen it yet you can find it here.
And if you want to know even more about Alex, you can read her blog, where she has a wonderful photo of a doorway made of books.
