What a fabulous time I had during Book Week! I’d like to thank all the teachers and librarians who helped make my tour a success, the Canadian Children’s Book Centre for running such a fantastic program for the last thirty years, and TD Canada Trust and the Canada Council for supporting it financially. Especially, I want to thanks the children of Ottawa, Osgoode, Carp, Toronto, Collingwood, Meaford and Thornbury. You were just about the nicest bunch I could ever hope to meet!
Here I am with the kids of Connaught Public School in Collingwood, Ontario, gathered around Earl, Jasper John Dooley’s wooden brother. The kids assembled Earl during the presentation.
And here are the Connaught kids performing their Symphony of Body Sounds with me conducting.
Here I am signing books next to Jasper John Dooley’s Family Stick.
