Wendy is a children's author, publisher of kamishibai and an early years teacher. She discovered kamishibai whilst teaching in Japan - it translates as 'paper theatre' and is a story laid out on a series of large cards, which can be used with or without a frame. Using the frame means you can have your hands free whilst reading and it allows for a dramatic and engaging story time. Wendy's latest story - 'Daphne and Stan' is illustrated by Samantha Eynon, whose work was featured in issue 5 of the Procrastination Paper. It's all about a dog who is sad and lonely because her owner spends too much time looking at his phone!
