I’m very lucky to have brilliantly creative friends. One of them has transformed The Pirate Tree into a kamishibai form, which is a form of Japanese street theater that became popular during the 1930s Depression and the post-war period. It’s becoming increasingly popular again and it’s no wonder because it joins the best aspects of theater, storytelling, and illustration.
Vesna premiered The Pirate Tree in July in the magical atmosphere of the medieval village of Stanjel.
Here’s also a video of me reading The Pirate Tree as part of my publisher’s online book club.
