Description

Brigid really loves markers. But when she draws on herself with super-permanent ink, she knows that spells trouble.

About the Annikin Series: Annikins are mini books made especially for children—small enough to fit into tiny hands and pockets. Each book measures 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" and contains full color pages.

Author profile page >

Hélène Desputeaux has been drawing since she was a young child. Her early "canvases" were walls, floors, hands, feet, and even the end of her nose. Since then she has added books and magazines to her repertoire, though from time to time she is still fond of returning to her early practice. Hélène and her family live just outside Montreal, Quebec.

Editorial Reviews

“A humorously exaggerated tale of a child who gets hold of super-indelible, never-come-off-until-you're-dead colored markers. Fun!”

— Emergency Librarian

“[The] illustrations ... are irresistibly brilliant.”

— Hamilton Spectator
