Melanie Matheson -- Book LaunchSunday Feb 15 2015 2:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium
Launch of Hokey Dowa Gerda and the Snowflake Girl (Peanut Butter Press).
Faith and Dakota’s ordinary lives take a not-so-ordinary turn when strange goings-on begin happening in their bedrooms at night. This brother and sister find fun ways to solve their problems and make friends, too.
“This is a great story in a unique voice that blends the spirit of Aboriginal storytelling and culture with a playful take on parent-child relationships. It does so in an imaginative and delightful way, with all kinds of things for kids to explore and take from the illustrations. The playful font enhances everything.” - Deborah Froese, award-winning writer of books for children and teens and editorial director, Rebelight Publishing.
