HELLO LIGHTHOUSE

April 2018, Little, Brown/Hachette, TBD pp

Sophie Blackall’s second Caldecott Medal-winning picture book will transport readers to the seaside in timeless, nautical splendor! Watch the days and seasons pass as the wind blows, the fog rolls in, and icebergs drift by. Outside, there is water all around. Inside, the daily life of a lighthouse keeper and his family unfolds as the keeper boils water for tea, lights the lamp’s wick, and writes every detail in his logbook. Celebrate the extraordinary life of one lighthouse and it’s cozy dollhouse-like interior as it beams its message out to sea through shifting seasons, changeable weather, and generations of keepers.

FINDING WINNIE

October 2015, Little, Brown/Hachette, 56 pp

The remarkable true story of the bear who inspired Winnie-the-Pooh. In 1914, Harry Colebourn, a veterinarian on his way to tend horses in World War I, followed his heart and rescued a baby bear. He named her Winnie, after his hometown of Winnipeg, and he took the bear to war.

Harry Colebourn’s real-life great-granddaughter tells the true story of a remarkable friendship and an even more remarkable journey–from the fields of Canada to a convoy across the ocean to an army base in England… And finally to the London Zoo, where Winnie made another new friend: a real boy named Christopher Robin.
