The best bits: working with extraordinary designers, illustrators and editors to create something that none of us could have achieved on our own; Apple Macs; getting letters from children; debating whether a father penguin can be shown wearing a pinny; discovering, during a proofreading job, a creature called a wrinkle-faced bat (definitely my spirit animal); being the boss of me.
