The Blue Hippopotamus
Now in paperback - Phoebe Gilman and Joanne Fitzgerald's beautiful story about the transformative power of love. When a little hippo falls in love with an Egyptian princess, he hopes that a great magician can turn him into a human boy. Alas, even the magician can't perform such a feat! Instead, the magician turns him into a toy that the princess can playwith - a beautiful blue hippo on wheels. The princess adores her toy and takes him everywhere with her. But little girls don't play with toys forever. The princess grows up and yearns for a true love. Can the hippo make her wish come true? Based on a story by Joan Grant, The Blue Hippopotamus was Phoebe Gilman's final book. The illustrations by Joanne Fitzgerald were inspired by sketches Phoebe drew before her death in 2002. *A Governor General's Award nominee!

Life as Carola

release date: Jan 11, 2010
Life as Carola
Celebrating three Russian literary greats—Alexander Pushkin, Anna Akhmatova, and Andrei Voznesenski—this collection of their writing presents new translations of a combined 34 poems and includes both Russian and English text. A handful of masterful illustrations are also included, opening an artistic dialogue with the poems and the reader. Similar to many other writers and artists throughout history, Akhmatova was influenced and inspired by Pushkin, and her canon of work has also endured and been acclaimed for its artistic integrity. Voznesenski was a poet and writer who had been referred to by Robert Lowell as “one of the greatest living poets in any language.” These three master poets are brought together with translations that engage their many complexities. Six poems are presented from Pushkin, 22 from Akhmatova, and six from Voznesenski.

Far Memory

release date: Jun 01, 2009
Far Memory
During the last twenty years, seven books of mine have been published as historical novels which to me are biographies of previous lives I have known. Far Memory is the autobiography of my ¬rst thirty years in the twentieth century. From early childhood, often to my extreme discomfort, I was sometimes aware beyond the usual range of the ¬ve senses. I tried to ignore the implications of this awareness, but it was too insistent; so in an attempt to understand what was happening I laboriously trained the faculty of far memory. This book describes, among other things, how I did so and what happened to me as the result. "Twenty years ago a book was published that electrified the world, a story set in ancient Egypt, entitled Winged Pharaoh. It was written by a young woman called Joan Grant. Now a book is published, Far Memory, which is Joan Grant's autobiography. It tells how Winged Pharaoh came to be written. It is the most touching, most amusing, most astonishing real life story I have ever read." - Nancy Spain, London Daily Express
