TD Canadian Children’s Book Week: I have the honor of being one of 30 Canadian children’s authors, illustrators and storytellers going on tour for a week in May 2018. Between the bunch of us, we’re covering all of Canada, speaking at schools, encouraging reading and meeting young readers.

My own tour will be in Ontario, but I won’t know where in Ontario until January. (Stay tuned.) Originally, we were asked to save the date, and told only that we would be touring somewhere other than in our own province. That sure left a lot of other places! So I dubbed it my “magical mystery tour.” And i remains a mystery tour, until I learn exactly where in Ontario I’m going. 🙂

There’s lots more information here:
