Painting my books: language love

'How Language Works' (watercolour on paper) - Jodi Wiley

That's my well-loved pocket dictionary at the top of the stack. I don't know where I got it from and I also don't remember a time I didn't have it.

My name is inside the cover, written in my best primary school joining-writing. I kept it by the side of my bed when I was a kid and always packed it with me to take on holidays.

And that probably tells you all you need to know about what kind of kid I was.
