BEST was fortunate to receive a visit from the author and the illustrator of the children's book 'Dipnetting With Dad' last week. They are in high demand and we snapped them up just in time. The author, Willie Sellars, told us that he wanted to write a story that recreated how he learned to dipnet salmon with his dad and grandfather and the book does just that- describes his first time. Kevin Easthope, the illustrator of the book, talked to us about how he became an artist and walked us through the process of how he decided on the style of the illustrations for 'Dipnetting With Dad'. It was good for the students to hear how long the process took and that the words and pictures were done and redone many many times over many many months before a final product was produced. A perfect example of grit, determination and perseverance.
