This week for Short Story Saturday, we feature Lieve Snellings’ excerpt of Time for Margot to Go to Bed. View the pdf here.
Lieve Snellings is a retired photographer who lives in Belgium, but about five months a year you can find her in Quebec. There she became a passionate nature photographer. She spent hours, weeks… observing wildlife and searched every info she could find. This, and her fantasy, made her publish three children’s books in which photos are as important as words. In fact, Lieve Snellings is an author because she is a photographer.
Her stories take the traditional picture book experience and transform it by replacing illustrations by her own nature photography. All the books in the series ‘Margot the Groundhog and Her North-American Squirrel Family’ are featured with whimsical photo illustrations of wildlife, and have a nice blend of fantasy and facts. The books are written in her mother tongue Dutch and translated in English and French.
