Vancouver illustrator/author of the children's book The Day It All Blew Away was short listed for the Christie Harris Illustrated Children's Literature Prize.
In The Day It All Blew Away, huge-headed Mr. Tadaa and the little person are mighty lonely. Surrounded by hat-tippers who are always tipping their hats and shunning those who don't return the favor, poor Mr. Tadaa has a head too big for his hat. Even worse, the little person's hat is so big it wears him. One blustery day, Mr. Tadaa's hat and the little person are blown away by the wind... and right into each other! A surprise twist at the end shows that even in a world of hat-tippers, nonconformists can find happiness and friendship.
