Today is the day we see the press proofs for our new children’s book The Boy Who Paints.
I’ve posted the front cover of the dust jacket as a feature image so you can see the beauty of Richard’s work. And here’s what the back cover says:
“Artist Cole and writer Watt begin a fruitful artistic collaboration with their debut children’s book about a young boy who loves to paint and uses the colours surrounding him to spark his creative imagination…After reading this book, your kid will want a paintbrush.” (Kirkus Reviews)
We know The Boy Who Paints will quickly become a family favourite for curling up and reading together. And we have worked with a panel of readers to make sure the book will be a hit with teachers and students in the classroom.
We are looking forward to launching it at Canada House Gallery in Banff on February 23, 2013 along with Richard’s newest paintings.
We’ll be launching it in Fort Langley in March at a community celebration. Details to follow!
