Congratulations to Stéphane Jorisch winner of the Governor General's Award for Illustration for his beautiful take on the Edward Lear classic, The Owl and the Pussycat (KidsCan Press). You can have a looky at the lookybook here.



KidsCan came up trumps this year as they also picked up the prize for Children's text with this year's award going to John Ibbitson for The Landing, which I've yet to read but it sounds promising. I'd also like to read his earlier title 1812: Jeremy's War.
