Sad Animal Facts | Brooke Barker

An absolutely charming compendium of weird facts and simple cartoons, created by a reference librarian who has been reading about animals since she was a child. #AllAges #CanadianAuthor

“One afternoon the members of the board all turned into frogs.” The premise behind each piece of short fiction or poetry in this collection is highly imaginative, but they evoke haunting emotions and reflections on the relationships between humans and other animals in urban environments. Shaun Tan‘s surreal illustrations add to the power. #AllAges #OzFiction #poetry

Captain Rosalie | Timothee de Fombelle

A five-year-old in France lives a rich imaginary life while her father is away fighting in the First World War. The poignancy of her story and her limited point of view are perfectly matched with Isabelle Arsenault‘s moody illustrations. Spots of fiery orange brighten the bleak grey and brown washes of ink. A coming-of-age story for ages six to adult. #AllAges #Translation by Sam Gordon.

Jaimelire Beautiful illustration❤️ 4w
Lindy @Jaimelire It was Arsenault‘s illustrations that led me to pick up this gem. 😊 4w

The Girl and the Wolf | Katherena Vermette

This children‘s #picturebook collaboration between two talented #Canadian Métis women is absolutely wonderful. The Red Riding Hood tale is turned upside down with a wolf who is a helping spirit, gently providing encouragement to a lost girl to rescue herself. The gorgeous art, contemporary setting and the extrinsic significance of the red dress (MMIW: Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women) add power to the underlying message. #AllAges

I‘m so happy this is finally going to be available in digital. I have the dvd, but we never use the DVD player anymore so it‘s not hooked up to the tv. This is going on my list.

TheBookKeepers Aw I used to love this movie! 1mo

🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟5 🌟
This new book is an illustrated poem the author wrote for his daughter after Obama was elected President. The poem is great on it‘s own, the illustrations make it amazing. In my review I can not do justice to this work of art, but I can say I love it!
