First Review for Looking for Loons

Book Review

Looking for Loons, (Jennifer Lloyd auth., Kirsti Anne Wakelin illust., published by Simply Read Books) won’t be out until the fall, but was reviewed from the proofs in the Quill & Quire.

excerpt from the Q&Q, July/August 2007, page 68:

Vancouver illustrator Kirsti Anne Wakelin’s luminous watercolours are an excellent match for the natural beauty of the tale’s setting. Glowing reds, oranges, and golds fill the double-page spreads.

-Jessica Kelley, a youth librarian from Vancouver living in Fresno, California

For this and other reviews of new Canadian (and international) books – both kidlit and adult – pick up a July/August copy of the Quill & Quire, Canada’s Magazine of Book News and Reviews.

EDIT: the review is now up on the Quill & Quire site.

  1. Hello Jennifer!
    nice to see you here 🙂
    I think *cough* Chapters *cough* might have copies of the Quill & Quire – if not, I think that the Q&Q eventually posts the reviews on their website once the next issue comes out. I’ll link to it here when I see it online.

    I’m glad I had the opportunity to illustrate your book – your story gave me a chance to draw and paint my favourite things – animals.

    I don’t know the exact release date of the book but I believe it’s to be this fall. I’m looking forward to seeing the final thing as well!

  2. Hi Kirsti,

    I came across your blog when I was searching for news on Looking for Loons.
    Have you seen the review in the Quill and Quire? I tried a few stores but so far haven’t been able to get a copy. Was it a good review?
    I haven’t seen the final edit yet of the book but the illustrations Dimiter sent me were wonderful! I couldn’t believe how you had captured the story so beautifully!
    Do you know the release date of the book? I am very excited to see how the book turns out.
