On Bookshelves Now!

Cover illustration copyright Virginie Egger

It’s out at last! My Cat Isis was released by Kids Can Press on March 1, 2011. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.

My Cat Isis is my first picture book, and it’s on the list of spring children’s titles in Publisher’s Weekly. Scroll through to K for Kids Can Press, and you’ll see my name amidst dozens of well-known children’s writers. Ah. What a nice feeling to be in such good company.

I’ll launch the book at my local library, with help from my local independent bookstore, later this month.

A host of elementary students have prepared gorgeous artwork to decorate the launch room – colourful drawings of their pets with the pets’ names written in Egyptian hieroglyphs. They are so beautiful, I just can’t keep them to myself. Check out these examples:

Perhaps these young artists and their classmates will follow in the footsteps of Virginie Egger, the illustrator of My Cat Isis, whose artistic talent has earned her a long list of Canadian and international awards, including the Governor General’s Award for Children’s Literature Illustration.  I hope so.

Look for a My Cat Isis launch update at the end of March. I offer a party, not just a reading. Expect lots of Ancient Egyptian info, Egyptian date candy and cinnamon cookies, cat-related songs from my talented friends, a craft for the kids and, of course, a story. I can’t wait.
