Interview with Alphabet Soup’s editor

BIG Kids Magazine is launching in Australia later this year. The magazine is the work of Jo Pollitt and Lilly Blue—promoting creativity in children in collaboration with artists (big and small).

Today I’m over at the BIG blog, talking about how and why I started Alphabet Soup back in 2008. Check out the 2008 photo of me opening the very first box of Alphabet Soup. The covers have changed a bit since then! (Have you read issue 1?)
