I met author-illustrator DJ Corchin many years ago at a comic con. I have interviewed him several times. The last interview, featuring Joey Roth handling the questions, can be found at On the Beat with DJ Corchin at C2E2 2021.
DJ writes books for children, which are also enjoyable for us big kids. His books gently teach life lessons, like communication, understanding and cooperation. His books are great learning tools for children, because they aren't preachy and don't pound lessons. DJ weaves lessons into interesting stories with colorful fun illustrations. I think so highly of DJ's books that I included Do You Speak Fish?, his latest, on Great Reads 2021 for Global Traveler.
