book jacket
Hoot Owl

Sean Taylor ill Jean Jullien

It's just brilliant! The illustrations are cool, the story is slightly dark but ultimately very funny and enjoyable. A kids book that is just as enjoyable for the adult reading it with them.

Terry Perkins And His Upside Down Frown

Felix Massie

Quirky debut about a boy whose words come out upside-down, which will resonate with children who have problems fitting in, or with speech and language. Massie’s background is animation, which is evident in the strong graphic style."

One of the most impressive debuts of the autumn, this is a really stunning picture book with both critical and commercial appeal. A bear stumbles upon a piano in the forest which takes him on the most incredible of journeys.

The Lion And The Bird

Marianne Dubug

"The intimacy of friendship, as well as the bittersweet sweep of time, is exquisitely rendered in this spare story of a kindly lion who rescues an injured bird flying south for winter ... A much needed antidote to the speed of the world, this picture book by French Canadian Dubuc is one to savor."
