Heartfelt & Shameless...

(& thrilled to do it)…promotion for my talented, witty and beautiful friend - author and illustrator Patricia Storms!






Do check out Patricia’s blog re: the following events:


A book giveaway for her new book “The Pirate and the Penguin.” If you have a child or know of a child (you must know at least one) they would love this delightful story. Although I’m not a child (okay, sometimes maybe I am…) I love it and I own two copies. One will be given away as a Christmas gift and the other is mine to keep. Yes, I am the proud owner of an autographed copy.

And for those of you living in Toronto or nearby, Patricia and her husband will be performing a skit based on the book Sunday, October 18 in Don Mills. Click on this link for details as to time, location, etc. I guarantee the skit will be great – and I oughta know. I’ve spent time with this woman. She possesses a talent for being funny & silly as well as for writing and illustrating.

Possible added bonus – you might just see me there! ;)


And just so you know, I wouldn’t promote anyone’s work if I didn’t love it.

Kids books are actually really fun for silly grown ups like me, sometimes ;-)

I'm far too sophisticated to purchase kids books (I make the wifey-poo buy them for me)

i like pirates and penguins too. it's not fair that i'm no longer a child (or that i'd rather have a penguin than a child) but i still like to read children's books.

Totally delightful...as a mother who bought many children's books as her boys were growing up, I love the illustrations as much as the stories. There is something heart warming about art that is created for a child's point of view and perspective. It never fails to touch me as an adult!

Patricia ROCKS!
You two girls are a real Combined-Hoot!

I hope that we can meet for lunch again!
This time though I'm going for Green Jeans hamburger! That FISH sandwich wasn't all that great, truth be told. Nothing beats a good hangyburr.

Aaawe! I love reading children book. I remember the first time I went to the library, it was in grade one and it was a trip to the public library. I was so jealous when other kids got to borrow books!

I hope she does well with her children's book. It's such a competitive market. Also, have fun while you're there!

Wonderful. I love children's books! Just got back from the screening of Where The Wild Things Are, actually - will post about it.

Thank you Beth. I have to get lots of Christmas gifts for my special friends, and books are my favorite. I LOVE children's books. What can be better than a pirate and a penguin tale. I will take your word for it and pick up some copies. You know I always love when you suggest books, you have never missed yet.
