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.
