Description

On a dark winter's night, a ragged beggar dreams of a warm hearth and a delicious meal --- and sets out to find just that. In this retelling of the classic folk tale “Stone Soup,” a stranger teaches the poor villagers what can be accomplished with a few buttons and a little cooperation.

Du?an Petricic was born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, but loved to pretend that he grew up in Zemun, an old city located just across the river (and now a part of Belgrade). As a boy he did all the forbidden things that children do, but what Du?an loved most was to draw. He started drawing at age four and, encouraged by his parents, he never stopped. He found inspiration in everything, and drawing became a way to communicate with the people around him. Two books that were very important to his childhood were an old encyclopedia with lots of pictures and The Boys from PavelÕs Street by Ferenc Moln‡r. Early on, he was moved by the drawings found within the encyclopedia. As he grew older, he adored many artists, including Leonardo da Vinci, DŸrer, and Picasso. Du?an has been illustrating childrenÕs books for many years. He has received numerous honors and awards for his work, in North America and internationally, including an IBBY Certificate of Honour and an Alberta Book Award for On Tumbledown Hill (Red Deer Press). The Longitude Prize (FSG) was selected as a Robert F. Siebert Honor Book for a Distinguished Informative Book for Children in the US. His beautiful, evocative illustrations for Mattland (2009) by Hazel Hutchins and Gail Herbert garnered Du?an the Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon IllustratorÕs Award from the Canadian Library Association as well as the Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award. His illustrations for Better Together (2011) by Sheryl and Simon Shapiro were described as ÒsublimeÓ by Kirkus Reviews. When it came time to reissue Robert MunschÕs Mud Puddle (2012), Du?an was AnnickÕs first choice to reillustrate the classic. The results are a fresh and energetic look that will delight a whole new generation of young Munsch fans. Du?anÕs latest book, The Man with the Violin (2013), was greeted with rave reviews, including starred reviews in Kirkus and uill & uire. Written by Kathy Stinson, this beautifully evocative picture book tells the true story of world-renowned violinist, Joshua Bell, who conducted an experiment by anonymously playing his priceless violin in the Washington D.C. subway station. Luckily for Du?an, his profession is his favorite hobby and he is happy when at work. To young artists he would give this advice: ÒThink, think, think, think, draw!Ó Du?an lives in Toronto where he is a regular contributor as an editorial cartoonist in the Toronto Star.
