More Award Nominations Blooming in Spring!

Today is officially the first day of spring, though it doesn't quite feel like it yet here in Toronto... I regret leaving my gloves at home! I can't really complain though: at least we have sunny blue skies. Something else is also putting me in a fresh spring mood: more award nominations for our authors!

Shadow-Town, by Duncan Thornton, has been shortlisted for the Manitoba Book Awards' McNally Robinson Book for Young People Award – Older Category.

The Canadian Library Association has also shortlisted two of our picture books for its illustration award, the Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon award. Congratulations to illustrator Dusan Petricic for Mattland and Deirdre Betteridge for A Pocket Can Have a Treasure In It!

Finally, we also received a nice review in Quill & Quire for The Bears We Know, written by Brenda Silsbe and illustrated by Vlasta van Kampen.

Happy spring!
