While working on this book, a theme that I kept coming back to was: convey the unexpected. Like the river, this independent heroine is constantly turning everything on its head. Early on, I was a little concerned about how to capture the dancing from the animation as stills. But almost naturally, all the flipping, flipping, flipping of the unexpected resulted in a sort of spirit of movement and grace that gives this children's book adaptation a life of its own.
It's a book for everyone :)
