CanCon Picture Books (by Julie Booker)

When I got a job as teacher-librarian in a primary school the kids asked if Miss Booker was my real name. The irony hadn't even occurred to me; I was too busy worrying about whether my name would hinder me from winning the famous literary prize. **Julie Booker is five feet tall. She lives in a Toronto row house and drives a tiny car. She has a toy poodle and twin baby boys. She teaches small children. She sees the world in pithy arcs, nicely contained. Her short stories have appeared in numerous literary magazines and anthologies, including the 2010 edition of Best Canadian Stories. She won the Writers' Union of Canada's Short Prose Competition for Developing Writers in 2009.**
