Congratulations to Brenda Jones, illustrator

Brenda Jones, recently won the Lillian Shepherd Memorial Award for Illustration for her work in Skunks for Breakfast(Lesley Choyce, author; Nimbus Publishing).

Everything about Pamela’s family and life is normal until the skunks arrive, and arrive. Then suddenly everything about her life, and her family, stinks. But Pamela takes heart, then action with her father, trying their darndest to get rid of the smelly pests, one after the other after the other.

Brenda Jones depicts the change in Pamela’s character, her reluctant warming to the unexpectedly cute creatures and her father’s helplessness in the face of such an odorous onslaught. Born and raised in PEI, she now works as an illustrator, commercial designer and film animator in Montreal. She has illustrated a dozen books, including Lobster in My Pocket and Mr. Sweetums Wears Pink.

Skunks For Breakfast is available through Nimbus Publishing call 1-800-nimbus9 to order direct.
