My House is Alive!

Just dropped into the new KidsBooks store in Vancouver. It looks great, they've moved a couple of blocks along Broadway into a much bigger space. 
A new book I did called My House is Alive! (OwlKids) is just out and I wanted to see if they had it. And they did. I signed a dozen copies - so hopefully somebody will drop by and buy them!

It\'s out!

I was very happy to drop by Kids Books in Vancouver to see the great people working there and my new book, P'esk'a!

I'm very excited to report that 'P'esk'a and the First Salmon Ceremony' is out! This book has been a labour of love.  The story follows P'esk'a through the village of Hiqelem. He races to get a tray to the chief in time for the first salmon ceremony. On the way we learn what life was like 1000 years ago in a First Nations village.
I'm happy to report two more books are in the works - still waiting on contracts so I won't spill the beans just yet. Don't want to jinx anything!

My House is Alive!

It's been a strange week here in Vancouver with the smoke shrouding so much of the city, humid weather and a wicked fight between a heron and a seagull.  I guess that's life on the west coast. Rain rain rain is what we need!
 I'm pretty excited to be wrapping up my new book called My House is Alive (with OwlKids). It's all about the weird noises we hear in the quiet of the night. Each page starts off with a spooky monster then is followed by an explanation of why the fridge hums and clanks or how come the toilet is gurgling.  Here's a sample. This book was so much fun to do.
