Can a skeleton have a book trailer?
Can a skeleton have an x-ray? is Kyle’s third picture book. Asked to describe what inspired him to write the book, Hughes-Odgers said, ‘My nephews and nieces ask a lot of questions, my friends’ children ask a lot of questions, children at book festivals and schools ask a lot of questions. I realised I enjoy asking them what they think the answer is or telling them elaborate lies about how things work, so I thought there might be a book in that.’
Hughes-Odgers said some of the text is based on questions he had actually been asked, but not all.
‘I really wanted to push past the more common questions and mix them with absurd or existential concepts,’ he said.
