Join host Becky Anderson as she talks to author Katherine Hannigan about her new children’s book, Dirt + Water = Mud.
A young girl and her dog spend the day playing in her backyard, where with her imagination and a few helpful props anything can happen. What do you get when you combine dirt and water? Mud. What do you get when you take a sheet, a flowerpot, and a stick and make a costume? You transform yourself into Her majesty, the queen. A cape and a strong breeze turn the treehouse into an airplane. A sheet, a stick, and a pair of well-placed cat’s ears turn the girl into a pirate. At least until mutiny leaves her alone in her kiddie pool…surrounded by sharks.
