Let’s Talk Illustrators #26: Basak Agaoglu

If you haven’t heard of debut author-illustrator Basak Agaoglu by now, I can safely say that won’t be the case for long. Her debut The Almost Impossible Thing published in April 2017 to critical acclaim, and given the complexities of her debut (which we’ll get into below!), the world is definitely waiting with baited breath to see what she’ll create next. Basak was kind enough to stop by and chat about her foray into children’s books and how she unexpectedly came to write her incredible debut. Enjoy!
About the book:
“The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.” — Chinese Proverb
Most of us want to fly — even if we know we’re rooted to the ground. Especially if we know we’re rooted to the ground. So when a rabbit spots a bird soaring in beautiful, colorful loop-de-loops, a dream is born. Though her friends tell her, “You can’t do that,” our rabbit is undeterred. Through comical ski jumps, trampoline bounces, swings on the trapeze, and experiments with kites . . . somehow, some way, there must be a way to fly.
Let’s talk Basak Agaoglu!
LTPB: I can’t believe this is your debut book! 
 
BA: Yes! My very first book, I’m so excited!
 
LTPB: I’d love to hear, in your words, how would you describe it?

BA: This book is about a dream that a group of like minded and almost identical bunnies share and that dream is to fly. They have long ears like the wings of a bird. Throughout the book they all individually attempt to bring this dream to life. Even though they fail a bunch of times, they never give up. And at the end, they all come together and join their strengths. With great team work and collaboration they bring their dream to life.

LTPB: Where did this idea come from? 

BA: A few months before I started working on this story, I found myself in the middle of a huge earthquake in Nepal. I was on a 2 week long trek, 13,000 feet high, hiking alone when it happened. I was the only solo hiker on the trek. The moment this terrible earthquake happened, it was obvious that I wouldn’t be able to finish it all by myself. I needed help. The rocks were still falling down and avalanches were happening. So along the way, I met some incredible people and joined their group. With tremendous emotional and physical support, we were able to complete the trek, and we made our way down the mountain safe and sound. This experience showed me loud and clear how important teamwork can be. So while I was working on the book, I knew that what these like minded bunnies needed to achieve their dream to fly was each other.
