Julie Morstad was awarded the Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award at the Canadian Children's Book Centre Awards on November 6 for her first picture book as author/illustrator, the remarkable How To. Morstad began her career in picture book illustration with Sara O'Leary's "Henry" books, beginning with When You Were Small.
She also illustrated the beautiful book, Singing Away the Dark, by Caroline Woodward, a board book version of Robert Louis Steven son's poem, "The Swing," and collaborated with Kyo Maclear for the recent book, Julia, Child. She's also published two books with Drawn & Quarterly, Milk Teeth and Wayside, and illustrated Jonarno Lawson's poetry collection, Think Again.
Plans are in the works for a new book this spring with Sara O'Leary in the spring, This Is Sadie. We're excited about this one, but in the meantime are so pleased to share with you this gallery of Morstad's work.
