I'm excited!  The Truth about Wind has been selected for the OLA Blue Spruce list.  Students all across Ontario can read and vote for the book they like the best. Wish I could have joined something like that when I was in school!

    Blue Spruce readers who would like to contact me by e-mail are welcome to use the link above and to the left (quill pen icon).  Or, if you would like to write a paper letter, have your teacher/parent/caregiver contact me and I'll provide my snail mail address.

Video Link, Hazel introducing The Truth About Wind


"Hutchins and Herbert’s text is vivid, specific, and evocative; Petricic’s pencil-and-watercolor illustrations have a fun, cartoonish quality that perfectly suits the story, investing the nominally inanimate toy with a huge personality . . .   gently conveying the importance of honesty. ”  - Kirkus Reviews, 01/21/20


The book should find a place in many schools and public library picture book collections. Highly Recommended. ”  - CM Reviews, 02/14/20
