Kyo also did a really marvellous book called Spork (also with the wonderful Isabelle Arsenault). There’s a little profile of her here: http://123oleary.blogspot.ca/2012/04/childrens-writer-of-week-kyo-maclear.html

Highly recommended!

My 5 yr old son has especially been affected by learning this and now each time he bathes, he wonders if dinosaurs bathed in exactly the same water he’s using. I found it to be such a profound book touching on a subject so big, but gets kids conscious of how precious water is and inspired mine to really try to do what they can to take care of it.

I discovered this book in Boulder, CO, last summer while I was attending the British Women Writers Conference. I sat reading it, mesmerized, in the children’s book area of the beautiful Boulder Bookstore on Pearl Street Mall, and knew from the first page that I would not be letting that book out of my clutches. Virginia Woolf has long been a favorite of mine, and this story is perfect in every way. My daughters love it, too; the illustrations are stunning and charming–and narratively surprising, which is something I am always delighted by. Thank you for featuring this wonderful book!

that being said – i am now impatient to add this book to my collection, being a life-long lover of virginia woolf and love the idea of this book, especially considering the conversations it might evoke with my children.
