AUGUST 2018 PICTURE BOOK BOX

  • Wolf Camp by Andrea Zuill from San Diego, California. A very funny book with delightful illustrations about Homer the dog. Homer is thrilled at the prospect of going to Wolf Camp, where he can live as wolf for a whole week. But he finds out that life as a wolf is very different from his life as a pampered dog. New in paper, Wolf Camp is Andrea’s debut book. She owned and ran a sign and graphics company for twenty years while creating oil paintings. Then in 2006, she started creating prints of funny and cranky characters, which led to her start in children’s books.
  • Red Sky at Night by Elly MacKay from Owen Sound, Ontario. Weather sayings and Elly’s enchanting images are a perfect match. The sayings weave into a story of a grandfather and his grandchildren as they head out on a fishing and camping trip. But red sky in the morning, sailors take warning! Elly studied print making and illustration at art school and has become an acclaimed paper artist and children’s author and illustrator. Her technique for creating her illustrations is quite detailed. First she inks her characters and the backgrounds on Yupo paper. Then cuts out the layers and sets them up in her miniature theatre. She lights the scenes and takes multiple photographs, altering the lenses, light and filters to create atmosphere. Elly takes her inspiration from Victoria Paper Theatre and Tunnel Books. 
  • An exclusive letter from Elly MacKay
  • A poster from Red Sky at Night
