In this issue, Frieda Wishinsky interviews five authors about why they write about the amazing women they do. You’ll also find a profile of Kathy Stinson, who tells Gillian O’Reilly about her writing career and how she’s managed to write in so many different genres. Our focus piece looks at what’s new in picture book titles published ten years apart (2005-2015) and we interview Gabrielle Grimard, the illustrator of this year’s TD Canadian Children’s Book Week poster. We also introduce you to Danielle Daniel , author and illustrator of Sometimes I Feel Like a Fox, in “Keep Your Eye On…” and in our “Bookmark!” column you’ll find a selection of books that focus on strong and talented women for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Our “Red Leaf Literature” and We Recommend” columns feature reviews of some fabulous new titles in Canadian children’s literature.
