I got some wonderful news this morning: my picture book “Le voilier d’Olivier” is a 2016 finalist for the OLA Forest of Reading awards in the Prix Peuplier category (French picture books)! As you can imagine (and see!) I am thrilled! Thanks to this nomination, Olivier and friends will be sailing into hundred of Ontario schools and libraries and meeting thousands of eager young readers! It’s an authour’s dream come true! Thank you so much to the selection committee!
The winner of this readers choice award will be announced at Harbourfront on May 19th 2016. If you haven’t attended the Festival of Trees, it’s a hoot and a half! Thousand of kids from all over Ontario come to Toronto to cheer on their favourite books and authors. It’s an amazing event and I am so happy to be attending again this edition! Hope to see you there and congratulations to ALL the finalists! I am humbled to be amongst such a talented and dedicated crew.
