 Back in paperback:

 Bradley McGogg The Very Fine Frog
 By Tim Beiser, illustrated by Rachel Berman
 Tundra Books, $9.99

 This lovely tale, whose delightful watercolour illustrations by Victoria's Berman made the shortlist for the 2009 Governor General's awards, is back in paperback, a veritable word feast with superb rhyme. And it's about a picky eater - who can't relate to that?

Anson S. Taylor P.S.

On April 27, Tim Beiser visited Anson S. Taylor Public School in Scarborough, Ontario as part of their Poetry Day festivities. It was a wonderful day together -- and what a pleasure it was to read all the absolutely awesome poetry written by the students. It covered the walls! The next day, the students sent the following delightful note:

Good morning.

Thank you for coming to our school yesterday. We loved your presentation.

We like your book because it has a lot of rhyming words in it. We also like the pictures.

We hope you have a good time making more books.
