Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! The Easter Bunny knew the Annick offices would be closed for Good Friday tomorrow, so he paid us a visit today instead.

And we didn't just get chocolate--advance copies of three of our Fall 2011 books arrived, and they look gorgeous! They'll be in stores this fall, so keep your eyes peeled for Chicken, Pig, Cow and the Class Pet (the latest in Ruth Ohi's series about three charming toy animals), Munsch at Play Act 2 (plays based on popular Robert Munsch stories--perfect for classrooms!), and Dogs Don't Eat Jam (a big sister's guide to growing up, by the author/illustrator team that brought you A Flock of Shoes).

We also received more good news on the awards front. Out of the five titles shortlisted for the CSWA's Science in Society Book Awards, four were Annick Press titles: 50 Burning Questions, Animal Snoops, Animals That Changed the World, and Lizards in the Sky. Congratulations to all of our shortlisted authors!

Congratulations are also due to Judie Oron, whose book Cry of the Giraffe won the Youth Literature category of the 2011 Helen and Stan Vine Canadian Jewish Book Awards. An awards ceremony will be held on May 30th in Toronto.

Chocolate, holidays, and new books--truly three of my favorite things!
