Daydreams for Night Book Trailer

We're so excited about this gorgeously creepy book trailer that artist David Ouimet made for his new book, Daydreams for Night. Check it out!

Daydreams for Night is a collection of very short, very strange stories written by acclaimed Canadian musician John Southworth, and illustrated by New York-based artist and musician David Ouimet. The stories introduce bizarre, imaginative characters: the boy with grey hair who spends his days on a cargo ship peeling potatoes, a strange man who keeps a Ferris wheel in his backyard, and a lonely whale that lives on the top of a faraway hill. The trailer shows Ouimet's black-and-white illustrations bringing these characters to intriguing life.

You can learn more about the book on our website here.

Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Picture Book Award!

Wahoo!! How To by Julie Morstad is the winner of the Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Picture Book Award for 2014!

And... Wild Berries by Julie Flett is an honor book! We are so so proud of our authors/illustrators!
As the jury says: "How To is intelligent. It is a book that is raucous and quiet, active and contemplative, child-focused and ageless. It presents a unique perspective on “seeing” things and opens up all sorts of possibilities."
