About the Author

Jo Rioux is an Ottawa born author and illustrator of children's books. Since graduating Sheridan college in illustration, she has illustrated young adult books, chapter books and picture books, but her biggest passion was and remains comic books. Her debut graphic novel Cat's Cradle went on to win the 2012 Joe Shuster award for best comic for kids. She lives in the lush suburbs of her home town, where she spends her time drawing, reading, teasing her dog and spinning tales of magic and monsters.


Jo has created a vibrant world full of magic and danger and cherry doughnuts. It's a world I'd like to live in, even with the monsters." --Ben Hatke, author of Zita the Spacegirl and Mighty Jack

At times vividly hair-raising, the book never overwhelms the reader, making it a worthy entry in the too-small category of scary fun for middle grade readers... Thanks to Rioux's crackerjack pace and dramatic panel composition, The Golden Twine is hard to put down.--New York Times

Cat's Cradle: The Golden Twine is a brilliantly crafted adventure brimming with lively, lovable characters and
intriguing mysteries that beg to be unraveled. --Matt Rockefeller, artist on the 5 Worlds series

A captivating series start that will have readers clamoring for more.--Kirkus

Adventure abounds in this first book in an exciting new graphic novel middle grade trilogy... Fantasy fans will love Jo Rioux's debut middle grade graphic novel as author-illustrator."--Book Riot
