A blurb from Andrea Davis Pinkney

Andrea Davis Pinkney is v-p and editor-at-large at Scholastics, and here is what she says :

"Amadi's Snowman is a beautiful tribute to the power of reading and one boy's journey of self-discovery through books. Dimitrea Tokunbo's evocative illustrations underscore the loving interchange between a mother and son. The richly hued paintings invite us to enjoy Nigeria's many splendors and provide the perfect stage for Katia Novet Saint-Lot's imaginative story."

Thank you, Andrea Davis Pinkney !

I will soon post the cover of the book. I need to figure out how to convert it from a .pdf file into .jpg. Anyone out there who is a bit more computer savvy than me - in other words, basically everybody ?

Katia, if you like, I can convert the file for you using Adobe Photoshop. Just email it to me at danie@cheerful.com and I'll send it back to you in two minutes.
