We now realise that it has taken over ten years to complete There’s Going to Be a Baby. We started with a much longer text, and for the sections in which the boy is exploring the baby’s future in his imagination, Helen drew realistic babies in adult clothing, which looked very bizarre and not entirely appealing. We can’t even begin to remember how many times we had another try at getting it right! Finally, Helen had the idea of depicting the baby as a comic-strip character, which removed some of the obstacles, and gradually the whole book came together.
