Gabby soon to be a paperback!

Gabby will soon be available in paperback!

My story about the little girl who dropped her book and all the letters fell out — and then whatever she spelled with those letters comes to life — is being reprinted as a paperback. It will still feature the gorgeous illustrations by Jan Dolby.

Gabby won the Rainforest of Reading Award (2015) and was an OLA “Best Bet” (2013).

Until now, Gabby has only been available in hardback. The new paperback will be more affordable, and portable. You can take Gabby in the car, to the cottage — anywhere!

The paperback Gabby will be available in Spring 2019.

Don’t forget, there are two other books in the Gabby series that are still available in hardback. Collect ’em all! And, because they’re about putting letters together, spelling and making words, they make a great gift for early readers.

You can get a copy of Gabby: Drama Queen and Gabby: Wonder Girl from your independent bookstore, Chapters/Indigo, an online bookstore or online from Fitzhenry & Whiteside. If it’s not available in your area, contact me and I’ll make sure you get a signed copy.

Gabby as a “woolly doodle”

Woolly Doodle Gabby Cathy DisbrowThis is a gorgeous new felted pin that I commissioned from Woolly Doodle’s Cathy Disbrow.

She is an incredible felting artist, and she’s created a version of Gabby that is so, so perfect.

I’m going to enjoy wearing this Gabby during school visits–or heck, anywhere I want to feel kidliterally stylish!

If you’re an author and want to commission one of her lovely pins for your own book character — or, let’s say you’re a pet owner (she does pets as well!) — visit Cathy’s Woolly Doodles website here.

A new Gabby, perhaps?

Well, I didn’t think there’d be a fourth Gabby book, but you know, when an idea pops up, it pops up! Not much you can do about it, except write it down.

So that’s what I’m doing.

And frankly, that’s all it is right now–an idea, and I haven’t even talked to the publisher, yet so it may go nowhere. But it’s really compelling and that’s always a good sign. I’ll write it down and see what happens after that.

Not going get into too much detail about the plot yet, except that it MIGHT involve some animals.

Er… lots of animals.

Might.

Stay tuned!
