About the Author
Joanne Schwartz's first picture book Our Corner Grocery Store was a Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award Finalist. Joanne had the honour to collaborate with Inuit Elder Qaunaq Mikkigak on two picture book versions of traditional Inuit tales, The Legend of the Fog and Grandmother Ptarmigan. Her recent picture book Town is by the Sea, illustrated by Sydney Smith, was a Governor General's Literary Award nominee and won the TD Canadian Children's Literature Award. Joanne has been a children's librarian for more than thirty years. She lives in Toronto.
Isabelle Malenfant has a bachelor's degree in graphic design, but never worked in the field because she fell in love with illustration first. She likes to mix mediums such as watercolor, pastels and charcoal to create poetic and sensitive worlds. Isabelle has illustrated more than a dozen children's books, including Maggie's Chopsticks (Kids Can), which was awarded the Christie Harris Illustrated Children's Literature Prize. She was born in northern Quebec, between gold mines and lakes, in the city of Val-d'Or. Isabelle lives in Magog, Quebec, with her little family.
