     it was such fun working on this latest picture book with my good friend Gail Herbert.   

     Wonderful illustrations by Lil Crump--her Anna character is so full of life she inspired the story! Quality reproductions of art by Shunsho, Degas, Cezanne, Monet, Emily Carr, William H. Johnson, Mary Cassatt, Diego Rivera, Daphne Odjig and more. Extremely proud to be part of this book.

CanLit for Little Canadian Review   -"so charming and so real

Canadian Materials *Starred Review*  -"The attention to detail is sublime as Crump’s gorgeous characters and scenery work to mirror the featured pieces on the wall that span centuries and cross oceans."
