RED Hair & RED Trimmed Pajamas in a RED Room IS BEST!
Red Is Best is now older than I was when it was first published. It has appeared in hard cover, soft, and in board book formats, as an Annikin, a Gage big book, and as an e-book. And it’s been translated in many languages so kids in other countries can enjoy reading it too.
Wow. Who knew that sitting down at my dining room table to pursue an idea I got after losing an argument with my young daughter would lead to all this?! I sat down to a typewriter after she and her brother were in bed, and wouldn’t have believed you if you’d told me that I’d even soon be writing stories on a computer.
