The Blue Hippopotamus

release date: Apr 01, 2013
The Blue Hippopotamus
Praise for The Blue Hippopotamus: Nominee, Governor General''s Literary Award, Children''s Literature, Illustration, 2007 Resource Links, Best of the Year, 2008 "Joanne Fitzgerald''s gentle watercolour illustrations perfectly complement the compassionate tone of the story. Gilman wisely stays away from verse, relating the tale in lucid and simple prose. The age-old folkloric moral -- that those who act in the interest of others are always rewarded -- thus emerges loud and clear." --Quill & Quire "Joanne Fitzgerlad''s gentle, sun-washed illustrations convey the gentle innocence of this story of friendship and love... a sweet and gentle tale [that] transports readers back to another time." --The Halifax Chronicle-Herald "Using a combination of watercolour, gouache and coloured pencil, Joanne Fitzgerald has created an early Egyptian environment in which magical transformations seem entirely plausible... a gentle bedtime book to share." --CM Magazine

Jillian Jiggs and the Great Big Snow
Rediscover the magic of a snowy day on the 10th anniversary of this delightful Jillian Jiggs story! "Jillian, Jillian, say it''s not true. How do you lose all the things that you do?" Jillian wants to go play in the snow with her sister and her friends, but her mom says no -- not until she finds her hat! So instead, Jillian wears a Martian hat from the costume box. Of course, that means the snowscape needs to be turned into Mars, with cosmic landscapes, aliens, and flying space sleds. As the creativity flows, though, Jillian loses not only her hat (again), but her scarf and mitts too! What is Mom going to say? Sledding, snowmen, and wild flights of imagination abound in Phoebe Gilman''s first-ever wintertime Jillian Jiggs story. Celebrate a wonderful, snowy decade of Jillian Jiggs and the Great Big Snow with this sparkly 10th anniversary edition of the much-loved story. Have fun, and try not to lose your mittens!
