Spring News & Reviews

Spring has sprung, even if it doesn't quite feel like it here in Toronto--though my friends in Vancouver say the cherry trees are beginning to bloom! Associate Publisher Colleen MacMillan and Sales and Rights Manager Gayna Theophilus are representing Annick at the Bologna Children's Book Fair, and they report that spring has arrived in full force there. We're looking forward to a full update next week.

The reviews are starting to come in for our Spring 2011 titles. Edeet Ravel's psychological thriller Held--about a teen who is kidnapped while on a class vacation in Greece--got a great review in Quill and Quire: "rich, thought-provoking stuff that would be excellent fodder for discussion and debate among older teens." Blogger and librarian Pamela Thompson also featured Held, calling it "clever, compelling, and consistent".

What's on your spring reading list?
