Wendy McLeod MacKnight's new children's book The Frame-Up is set in Fredericton's Beaverbrook Art Gallery, where the paintings in the story are secretly alive. Most of the characters are inspired by real paintings that you can go see in the gallery. Speaking with guest host Talia Schlanger, MacKnight shares why she's so passionate about bringing the world beyond the frames to life for kids.
