Worth 1000 Words!!!

Worth 1000 Words!!!

As most of you know, my newest book, My Little Angel, will be released soon, and I have contacted many of my Kid Reviewers to request another review!  I was delighted to get this response from Crystal of CastleviewAcademy.com confirming Tristan and Kallista are looking forward to another review!

“You must have heard me tell the children earlier today that I had an email from you that need a reply 😉 Or maybe it was Kallista splashing some milk in her eyes and Tristan saying she would cry a lake of sour tears like the Whimper Whineys….Time continues to fly by! We’re doing more hands-on school at the moment which is fun, but more time consuming – but worth it for the learning and the time together! Tomorrow we’ll do an art project together – Kallista always calls them fingerpaint masterpieces – no matter what the medium.

Yes, Tristan and Kallista will be thrilled and honoured to review your latest masterpiece!”

9 Awards, including Illustration Award for Kalpart!

My Fingerpaint Masterpiece is Truly a Masterpiece!

Another Holiday suggestion is My Fingerpaint Masterpiece, winner of nine awards including the Gold Medal K-3 Readers’ Favorite Award as well as a Readers’ Favorite Illustration Award.  My illustrator, Kalpart, is awesome!

My Fingerpaint Masterpiece deals with perspective, perception and self-esteem as a child fingerpaints artwork in class, and later discovers it as part of the town’s Art Contest. Have you ever looked at a multi-million dollar painting in a museum and thought that your kindergartener might have painted it?  This is part of the theme of this book, where the illustrations are all from the point of view of the child artist, whose identity is never revealed.  When giving book readings at the schools I always ask the children to vote on whether or not the child telling the story is a girl or a boy.  Not surprisingly, it’s usually split 50-50, according to the voters’ gender!

There are also hidden objects in the fingerpaint masterpiece itself, which the readers have fun discovering.  Here is a sample, although I’m not sure I got all of them.  This is the page showing the upside down “masterpiece”, outlining some of the secrets…
