Emma Willard Students Illustrate New Children's Book about Feisty Female Characters
Gross, Karen
Independent School, v75 n4 Sum 2016
"Lady Lucy's Quest" (Shires Press) is a story about a feisty young girl in the Middle Ages who wants to become a Knight of the Round Table. The initial reaction of her family, the townspeople, and the knights is, stated simply, "no way." But Lucy perseveres and meets the three challenges of knighthood presented to her, albeit in unusual, intriguing, and unexpected ways. The book is illustrated by two high school seniors at The Emma Willard School (New York) as their senior year project. Ji Woo Jasmine Shin and So Young Yang, with the help of their art teacher, Lindsey Slaughter, worked to animate Lucy. Both student illustrators are immigrants from Korea and understand Lucy's story and her need to pursue a dream. They created moving, remarkable scenes to make Lucy's story come alive.
