About the author: “What if…?” It’s the beginning of every story. What if you met a blind woman in a used clothing store? What if you were a seven-year-old boy struggling to survive in Africa without parents? What if pigs could fly or a hurricane asked you to dance? Being a fiction writer means constantly wondering, imagining – how does it feel to be somebody else? It’s a lot like being nosy…I live in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, and I’m a writer and illustrator, a former teacher, and a mother. I grew up in Truro, NS (Janet Mingo) and went to Acadia University; I love my bike, travel, France, chocolate, Georgia, picture books and my family (not necessarily in that order).
Themes: The themes in this book include friendship, imagination, mischief, and humour.
