A Chat with Kate Klise, part 9

This interview was conducted by Emily Brown, Children's Librarian at the Mt. Pleasant Library in Providence, for the 2010 summer reading booklet.  

Question (Emily Brown): Do you have a favorite page or picture in Regarding the Fountain?
Answer (Kate Klise):  I always laugh when I see the picture on page 64 of the waitress slipping and spilling a pot of tea. The book was finished and ready to be printed with Sarah sent me that drawing with a note: "Can't we fit this in somewhere?" My first reaction was, "No! The book's done! Please stop sending me artwork!" But then an hour later, I thought: Wait. She's right. And that's when Florence had the spill-ended idea for the fountain.
