Happily taking its place alongside her three most recent books for kids, Jocey Asnong’s first Nuptse and Lhotse adventure is now available through Rocky Mountain Books and Heritage Group Distribution!
This is the fantastic story of Nuptse and Lhotse, two cats who find themselves on their way to the highest mountain in the world. Set in the Nepal Himalayas, this story takes place in a land where lost marbles can lead to maps, where vanilla tuna ice cream covers mountain tops, and where bravery can be measured by a jellybean.
Nuptse and Lhotse in Nepal is a story for dreamers of all ages that live in their hearts in far away places.
About the author
Jocey Asnong was raised by a pack of wild pencil crayons in a house made out of paper and stories. After finishing several years of illustration school at Sheridan College, she left the land of maple trees in Ontario and moved to the mountains of Alberta so she could wear mittens most of the year. When she is not chasing her cats around her art cave in Canmore, she might be caught in a blizzard near Mount Everest, or running away from wolf dogs in Mongolia, or peeking out castle windows in Scotland, or sleeping under the stars in Bolivia. Jocey’s illustrations can be found in all kinds of unusual places, as well as in the picture books Mushkid, The Princess and the Cheese, Nuptse and Lhotse in Nepal (winner of a Purple Dragonfly Award), Nuptse and Lhotse Go To the Rockies (RMB, 2014), Nuptse and Lhotse Go to Iceland (RMB, 2015), Rocky Mountain ABCs (RMB, 2016) and Rocky Mountain 123s (RMB, 2017). She lives in Canmore, Alberta.
