Known for her Ivy + Bean series of children's books, Annie Barrows never dreamed the outcome of the request of her aunt, Mary Ann Shaffer, to revise Shaffer's manuscript for The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Barrow talks about her aunt's 20-year passage from inspiration to book creation, which tells the story of English islanders living through German occupation during World War II.
