Check out Eliza's Stageworthy Live interview with Stageworthy Podcast host Phil Rickaby, as they discuss the journey of Harvey and the Extraordinary from the stage to the page.
A heartfelt, funny, gently thoughtful debut, Harvey and the Extraordinary shows Martin as a talent to watch, with a knack for creating characters that ring true. We're excited to welcome her to Open Book today to talk about Harvey and the Extraordinary as part of our Kids Club series where we speak to writers of books for young readers.
She tells us about the book's origins as a Toronto Fringe Festival show, the importance of writing socks, and why great kids' books offer readers "a place to feel accepted".
Explore Harvey and the Extraordinary and other titles from Annick's Fall 2021 Book Preview.
