After completing the children’s book series The School for Good and Evil last year, the author decided to retell stories including Snow White and Peter Pan. In an I’m So Obsessed podcast, he explains why.
Author Soman Chainani has spent 10 years working on his children’s book series The School for Good and Evil. He finished the sixth, and last, book in the series, One True King, in March 2020, and says he was ready to take the rest of the year to relax and head out on new adventures. But the day after he turned in the manuscript, COVID-19 happened and so he spent most of 2020 pretty much indoors.
What did he do during lockdown? He wrote a new book, called Beasts and Beauty: Dangerous Tales, which has just been released.
