I'm putting aside my kid's book for a while. I'm not sure what's wrong but it's not "talking to me" :)
In the meantime I have this other family in my head that keeps pestering me to come out. It's a fascinating process coming up with their backstory - almost interviewing the characters. "So tell me, why don't you get along with your sister?" lol
Will run with it and see where it takes me.
