Honoured for the chance to illustrate The Writers' Union of Canada Holiday Card. Not only is the Union an invaluable resource and advocate for Canadian authors, they offer funding for hosts wishing to bring authors to their readers. Thank you, Writers' Union, for all you do. Happy Holidays, everyone!
Excited to be part of this!

Simple text describes the ample space available to our children in this country, and the freedom they have to grow and dream and share. With artwork from 13 of Canada’s finest illustrators, each page is a celebration and a reminder of the infinite variety of our home and native land.

Thank you, School Library Journal's Lucia Acosta for this lovely review of SHH! MI HERMANO ESTA DURMIENDO (Picarona) - the Spanish edition of Shh! My Brother's Napping (Scholastic Canada). "Readers will recognize the familiar conflict of emotions typical of most sibling relations, and smile at the honest portrayal.
Had fun making this for April 2016's SCRIBBLE (Scholastic Canada).
Circle, Square and Triangle are doing just fine--but when Scribble 'draws' them together, their imaginations soar.
Original music by my awesome husband on GarageBand. The four solid beats represent Square.The three for Triangle. The cycle is Circle and everything else is Scribble. Hope you like it!
