BEST Porcupine Decorated Tree from Public Libraries across Canada??

Public libraries across Canada were invited by Scholastic to decorate a porcupine tree.  This is just a small selection of some of the entries.  So hard to chose the best. Contest is still open.  A Porcupine in a Pine Tree Holiday Contest for Libraries | Facebook

 

 

Winner of Day in a School Chosen but MIA!

Last night I drew the name of the person who’s school I will be visiting for a day in 2013.  However I haven’t been able to contact her.  If anyone knows who’s school Nicole Abrams child or children attend, please contact me or give Nicole a call. I’d love to announce the name of the school!  Until then, please stay tuned. It could be your school in the Guelph area.

Guelph & Area: Give your school a present: an Author Illustrator visit!

Over the years of writing and illustrating children’s books I’ve been fortunate to visit schools and libraries across Canada and into the high Arctic.  Yet sometimes the places closest to home get left out.
Because I believe strongly not only in the beauty  of books and the magic of reading, but also in the future of book stores,  I want to, with the help of a lucky girl of boy,  give a local school a present:
I will be giving away a Day in a School to any elementary school in the Guelph area.*
From now until December 20th, come in and fill out a ballot at the Bookshelf.
No purchase is necessary.
I will be at the Bookshelf Saturday Dec 8, noon until 3 to meet and sign copies of ‘A Porcupine in a Pine Tree’
Hope to see you there.
*Aberfoyle, Rockwood, Fergus &  Elora  included.
Value  $750.
Presentation date to be arranged by mutual agreement  between January  and March 2012
Winning school will be notified 8:30 a.m. December 21st.
