Not one, but two boxes of books!

April 26, 2011
What’s better than getting a box of you latest book?
 
Getting TWO boxes of your two latest books. Last week I had the nicest surprise when I came home one day. I got a box from Raven Tree Press that included both the English and the bilingual versions of my latest book “The Park that Our Town Built.” But wait… there’s more. On the same day I also got a box from my other publisher, Do Life Right, Inc., with the brand new Wright On Time book #4 “South Dakota.” It sure feels great to see all that work right there in it’s final format. It’s been a very happy week.T.

Shaun Tan won an Oscar!

February 28, 2011

Did you watch the Oscars last night? How exciting that Shaun Tan won an Oscar for Best Animated Short for his film “The Lost Thing”. I am so excited to see his success with his animation, especially seeing that I have always been a fan or his incredible illustrations. Check out his website:

Here is a link to a page on Shaun Tan’s web site where he talks about “The Lost Thing.” He has lots of sketches and talks about the film as well.  http://www.shauntan.net/film1.html

The Ugly Duckling

Poor little Ugly Duckling. Always being made fun of. Could it be that this is one of the first fairy tales that addresses the issue of bullying?

Happy Tell a Fairy Tale Day.
