Most days that happen to all of us are ordinary . . . but sometimes, something magical happens (especially if you’re the protagonist of a book). Authors Nidhi Chanani (Jukebox), Shing Yin Khor (The Legend of Auntie Po), Molly Ostertag (The Girl from the Sea), and Olivia Stephens (Artie and the Wolf Moon) talk about how characters deal with unanticipated departures from the mundane, and how they conceptualize writing and drawing book-worlds where life becomes unexpectedly fantastical or supernatural.
