EASY-TO-READ TEXT: Perfect for beginning readers and a great storytime read-aloud.
ADORABLE ILLUSTRATIONS: Readers will love the mischievous cat and beleaguered girl, while the spare and contemporary illustrations beautifully show the increasing mess (and fun) of the narrative.
ILLUSTRATOR ON THE RISE: John Martz is an award-winning up-and-coming illustrator with strong connections to the comics scene. He is also the Art Director for Penguin Random House Canada Young Readers!
EZRA JACK KEATS AWARD-WINNING WRITER: We’re committed to building Nicola as an author, as we love her writing and her beautiful books, including The Pirate’s Bed and A Bedtime Yarn.
PRAISE FOR Cinnamon Baby by Nicola Winstanley:
“…turns the power of a mother’s love into about as delicious a story as you could want when the subject is unhappy babies.”—The New York Times
“A charming offering infused with warmth, romantic whimsy, and love.”—Booklist
“Perfection might be the word to describe this confection, a delectable tale in which whimsical collage, watercolour and graphite pencil illustrations dance across the pages of text, in step with and amplifying the latter in all the best ways.”
—The Globe & Mail
“Children able to appreciate the quaint plot and drawings will enjoy this cozy story.”—School Library Journal
PRAISE FOR Who’s on First, illustrated by John Martz:
“Martz’s expressive characters cavort on backgrounds that pop with appealing color. Clever page formatting conveys the pacing that is such an integral part of the laughs.”—School Library Journal
“Confusion reigns as the banter between coach and catcher gets sillier and sillier with each new question and answer. The supercute cartoon illustrations, arranged in both panels and strips against solid backgrounds, only intensify the zaniness.”—Booklist
“Martz’s clever graphics make the premise clear to the youngest readers…. Parents can now introduce the routine earlier than has been traditional for young fans and, as we all know, participating in tradition is the essence of the love of baseball.”—Newsday
