About the Authors

David Weale


Pierre Pratt is an internationally acclaimed illustrator of over fifty books for children. Pierre's honors include three Governor General's Awards for Illustration and a prestigious Golden Apple Award. He divides his time between Lisbon, Portugal, and Montreal, Canada.

ANNE LAUREL CARTER is an author. Her eighteen books have been inspired by something she felt needed telling, either from her experience, her children's or someone she'd met. She divides her year, writing and teaching, between Toronto and Nova Scotia where Anne is a neighbour of Stella Bowles. She was inspired to write Stella's story of environmental activism.

Quand elle était petite, Ninon Pelletier rêvait de devenir astronaute pour voir le monde différemment. Elle est plutôt devenue illustratrice après des études en photographie et en graphisme. Elle a illustré plus d’une trentaine de livres pour enfants au cours des vingt dernières années et a été mise en nomination pour le Prix du Gouverneur général en 2016. Elle vit à Montréal, au Québec, au milieu de ses crayons, de ses fusains et de ses amis.

KIT PEARSON is one of Canada’s most beloved children’s authors. Her award-winning books include A Handful of Time, which has sold more than 250,000 copies since it was published in 1987; the Guests of War trilogy; The Daring Game; Awake and Dreaming, winner of the Governor General's Award; The Whole Truth, winner of the CLA Book of the Year for Children Award; And Nothing but the Truth; and A Day of Signs and Wonders, finalist for the TD Canadian Children’s Literature Award. She is a recipient of the Vicky Metcalf Award for her body of work and the Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence. In 2018, Kit was appointed a member of the Order of Canada.

Katherine Farris was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, and after university moved to Toronto, Ontario, where she worked at Toronto Life Magazine, Greey de Pencier Books and OWL Magazine, researching and editing a wide variety of projects, from rail guides to western and eastern Canada for Greey de Pencier to kids' question-and-answer books for OWL. During that time she began painting, and now, living in Victoria, British Columbia, her focus is primarily on art and playing the alto sax.


Gabrielle Grimard uses various media to research and create the illustrations for a book, but her favorite aspect will always be color. She uses mainly watercolors, gouache and oil. She adds a touch of wooden pencil for the details. She has illustrated dozens of books and has been nominated for several awards. She lives near Sherbrooke, Quebec.

Bree Galbraith is a graduate student of the Emily Carr University of Art + Design. She uses narrative in much of her work and was thrilled when a class project became her first published children’s book, Once Upon a Balloon. She is also the author of Usha and the Stolen Sun (Owlkids, 2020). Bree works as a graphic designer in Vancouver, where she lives with her family.


Isabelle Malenfant has a bachelor's degree in graphic design, but never worked in the field because she fell in love with illustration first. She likes to mix mediums such as watercolor, pastels and charcoal to create poetic and sensitive worlds. Isabelle has illustrated more than a dozen children's books, including Maggie's Chopsticks (Kids Can), which was awarded the Christie Harris Illustrated Children's Literature Prize. She was born in northern Quebec, between gold mines and lakes, in the city of Val-d'Or. Isabelle currently lives and works in Montreal, Quebec, with her little family.


TROY WILSON is the author of The Sinking of Captain Otter, Liam Takes a Stand, and other picture books. Dog vs Ultra Dog began as a Chickadee magazine story, and is Troy's first superhero book since the highly acclaimed Perfect Man. He lives in Victoria, British Columbia.

Dean Griffiths realized his love for drawing at the age of 12, halfway through reading a comic book. He has illustrated over a dozen children's books, including The Patchwork House by Sally Fitz-Gibbon. He lives in Duncan, BC.

Dominique Demers is a professional communicator. She worked as a journalist for L'actualité, as a teacher at the University of Quebec at Montreal, and as literary critic for Le Devoir, before becoming an author, speaker, and scriptwriter. She has written more than 30 children's books and also writes for adults. She has been nominated four times for the Governor General's Literary Awards. She was the honorary president of the Salon du livre de Montréal for three years and, since the fall of 2003, she has starred on Radio-Canada's programme Dominique raconte, where she reads books to young children.
