About the Author

NANCY VO was raised where the sun rose in the prairies and set behind the Rockies. By night she makes picture books. She is the author/illustrator of the first two books in the Crow Stories trilogy: The Outlaw, described by the New York Times as "bewitching," and The Ranger, praised in a Kirkus starred review as "visually arresting and enigmatic." Nancy is also the author/illustrator of Boobies and the illustrator of As Glenn as Can Be by Sarah Ellis. She lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Reviews

Fresh and funny.

-- "Prairie Books NOW"

A truly delightful read. As informational as it is witty and bright, Boobies offers conversational narration that leads readers through a variety of facts and figures about mammalian and human breasts. STARRED REVIEW

-- "Quill & Quire"

A groundbreaking picture book ... Boobies is a big step forward in educating young children about the mammary gland's use. STARRED REVIEW

-- "Shelf Awareness"

Vo plays deliriously with words and expectations but also delivers a frank overview of mammary glands across (relevant) species.

-- "Kirkus"

Playful and silly, Boobies honours these beautiful body parts by highlighting their function and explaining some lesser known, yet interesting, scientific and historical tidbits. ... This delightful read is appropriate for primary students, young ones with a good sense of humour, and families on a breastfeeding or chestfeeding journey.

-- "Cloud Lake Literary"
Boobies is a wonderful, non-judgmental, body-positive celebration that successfully manages to both educate and entertain.-- "CM: Canadian Review of Materials"

Chock full of fascinating breast-related facts, this is part of the ever growing trend of helping kids (and, quite frankly, adults) be comfortable with all the different kinds of bodies out there.

-- "School Library Journal"

A unique and charming approach to the science behind breasts and will educate as well as engage.
