Noni at Type Books

Noni Is Nervous at Type Books

We hope you can join Heather Hartt-Sussman at Type Books on Saturday, September 21 from 3:00-5:00 pm. She will be reading from her newest picture book, Noni Is Nervous, and a signing will follow.

PRAISE FOR Noni Is Nervous:

“Côté’s gentle watercolors capture Noni’s emotional experience…. Softly lavender, monochrome illustrations depict Noni’s previous reasons for being nervous, all made right in her mother’s arms…. A charming, seemingly simple book that gets right to the heart of the matter.” — Kirkus Reviews

“The text is clarity itself, while Coté’s rough, splotchy watercolors elicit plenty of emotion from a minimum of strokes. For fearful first-timers, this strikes just the right note of reassurance.” — Booklist

“Young readers will enjoy the gentle watercolour illustrations, and will relate to the charming tale of Noni Is Nervous. Perfect to read aloud and share before the start of the school year.” — The Yummy Mummy Club

Noni is nervous about play-dates, and global warming, and most of all, about the first day of school. Her parents are worried too, and even her brother is a little wary. But Noni finds a friend, someone a little more outgoing than herself, and discovers that through friendship, she can belong and succeed in a world that once filled her with dread. The story is a universal one about the power of friendship and belonging, delightfully illustrated by award-winning illustrator Geneviève Côté.

SmokescreenSmokescreen

Hardcover | 208 Pages | Ages 12+
ISBN: 978-1-77049-405-3
eBook: 978-1-77049-406-0
Nothing in Kerry’s life prepares her for her first summer job. Stationed as far north from Toronto as Florida is south, unqualified and inexperienced, she perceives hazards around every tree. What does she know about fieldwork? Or black bears? Or men? Absolutely nothing—all she’s done with her life so far is competitive dance. If her mother only knew what this job required!

Kerry’s new partner, Yvette, is unlike anyone she’s ever met and something about her doesn’t add up. Her boss is a chauvinist pig and out to get them. When forest fires break out, Kerry and Yvette are drafted for fire duty and sent deeper into the bush—even closer to the fire. As all of northwestern Ontario goes up in flames, Kerry vows to find out what is really going on and uncovers a crime of international scope and scale that will threaten her life.

Smokescreen is an adrenalin pumping adventure, pitting two resourceful young women against nature and man at their most greedy. Truth and lies. Fire and darkness. Who will triumph when nothing is what it seems?
