Local author Bree Galbraith has released her second picture book, “Milo and Georgie” illustrated by fellow Canadian Josée Bisaillon and published by Owl Kids Books. You can pre-buy a copy of the book today + pick it up instore at our launch on April 22nd.
Milo and Georgie is a sweet story about two children adapting to change. Their single mother gets a new job in a different city; Milo the older brother, isn’t happy about this at all and decides to give up on having fun all together. Georgie his little sister, wants to get out and explore but Milo has confined himself indoors with the babysitter’s sour lemonade. The tale follows the siblings in their opposite reactions to change, with a happy resolution in the end.
Bisaillon’s water colour and collage illustrations cheerfully lead us through a beautiful city as the text helps us navigate through reluctant feelings and adapting to change. Did I mention that there is also gelato?
On April 22 from 12- 2 pm you can join us as we create a city of our own with Bree herself. Of course there will also be frozen treats! Order your advanced copy and have it signed by Bree, click here for more your book + ticket.
