"Word-and-Picture Sandwiches"



Troy has crafted the words for a wide variety of word-and-picture sandwiches, including picture books, illustrated magazine stories, comics, and greeting cards.  He’ll take you into the kitchen for a peek at the different ways these sandwiches were put together (with the preparation method for his most recent book, The Duck Says, being the most surprising of them all).
