    What If?

    Created by: Doretta Groenendyk

    Anxiety. It’s tough. It’s tough for kids. It’s tough to parent. That deep-rooted fear of what might happen, the atmosphere of self-doubt, the attack of fear: What if something bad happens? What if I don’t know? What if they laugh? Or if i cry? But…what if something good happens? What if you laugh? And you make a friend?

    What If? Is a humour-filled, edgy, tender picture book that portrays what it feels like to have anxiety and responds to it with the potential of whimsy and joy. Doretta Groenendyk’s new book What if? takes the young, worried child to journey through layered images of panic and into the delight of possibility.

  • When the Hill Came Down

    When the Hill Came Down

    Created by: Susan White

    Keefe Williams lives a childhood of neglect and disconnect, feeling completely invisible. Known only for the story of the night his parents died and the freak event that killed them, he suffers silently holding on to the one thing in his life that sets him apart. When Keefe is a teenager Summer Barkley moves to the community. She is oblivious to the entrenched story of Keefe Williams’s life, giving him an opportunity to finally be someone separate from his tragic past. As their relationship develops, Keefe can claim his true identity.

    Through Keefe’s art and Summer’s writing the need to truly explore and understand the past becomes something from which they cannot run. When the Hill Came Down explores greed, jealousy, love, loyalty and the very fabric of a community full of stories whose threads intertwine. The colour, texture and multi-faceted of any story in any community, bear scrutiny. Nothing is ever exactly the way it seems.
