JULIA: "Pandora’s Box" was such fun to work on with you. What’s your favorite line in the book and why? What’s your favorite illustration from "Pandora’s Box" and why?
CHRIS: This book really was fun to work on. I'd have to say my favorite line in the book is the last line: "Her playful prying brought delights, the splendor known as Northern Lights." It's not only my favorite because the idea stemmed from a comment my cousin's daughter made, but also because of how it was interpreted so poetically and beautifully by Julia. My favorite illustration would have to be the cover. The landscape (horizontal) version's composition and color scheme is something that I'm really proud of. I also love the fact that it not only introduces Pandora, but also the box and many of the secondary characters.
JULIA: If you met Pandora, what advice would you offer her?
CHRIS: Don't take any wooden icicles. Or... one in the hand is worth two in the box. Or... if it waddles like a penguin and squawks like a penguin, chances are... it's a penguin. Of course, if she was my daughter, I would tell her be your own penguin and follow your heart (not your flippers).
JULIA: If you stumbled upon a mysterious locked box what would YOU most like to find inside?
CHRIS: The security of knowing that my family would be safe and sound for a very long time. Or maybe an In and Out Burger.
