Thrilled that my picture book Weeds Find a Way has been chosen as an American Library Association Notable book for 2015. The list includes 26 books that the ALA says are "the best of the best in children's books." I'm honored to be in such great company! See more at http://bit.ly/1chOMiC
Good news: five illustrations from my picture book WEEDS FIND A WAY were recognized at the Illustration West 53 Competition. The judges also gave my work a Gold Award and the Patrick Nagel Award for Excellence. Yippee! Many thanks to the Society of Illustrators Los Angeles.
My Skype visit to a children's literature class 1700km away at the University of Northern Colorado. Thanks, Dr. Erekson and students! Shhh...don't tell anybody that I was wearing my fluffy bunny slippers!
At Wordfest, Sheila Heti and Leeann Shapton talked about their book WOMEN IN CLOTHES, a survey, catalogue and visual essay on stories our clothes tell us. Here’s my contribution to the evening's clothing swap, along with my illustrated label.
On September 26, we welcomed my Little Free Library to its new home!
A group of kids cut the ribbon. Then we read some books. (Photos above: Janine Vangool.)
Visit the Capitol Hill Community Centre (21st Ave. NW near 15th St., Calgary) for a good read. Or find a Little Free Library near you: http://littlefreelibrary.org.
