This is Sadie's Book Birthday
Today is publication day for This is Sadie and to celebrate I decided to buy myself a little present....
My little Sadie doll was built by the very talented Atelier Caroline. Check out her work here. I couldn't be happier!
I also couldn't be happier with this book. Julie Morstad just gets better and better and given how good she was to begin with, this is really saying something. Working with Tundra Books and its Editorial Director Tara Walker has been a dream. Her belief in the book from the very beginning has been what's brought it to glorious life. Jackie Kaiser of Westwood Creative has been Sadie's literary godmother and I am grateful for this and all other blessings she has brought into my life. The whole Tundra Books/Random House Canada team has been fantastic to work with.
Special thanks to the book's brilliant designer Kelly Hill (that cover!) and to Sylvia Chan and Pamela Osti and Aliya Stacey for helping Sadie find her way in the larger world. Response to the book so far has been lovely.
Just read 'This is Sadie'...magical!
Many congratulations on creating another beautiful and thoughtful and sweetly irreverent picture book!
Caroline's interpretation of Sadie and her fox, box and blanket are fabulous! I would have treated myself in exactly the same way if I had just had a book published. That fox, especially, has captured my imagination already! So glad you shared these here.
Thanks so much.
