LUCY AND THE DRAGONFLY

BY LUCIE PAPINEAU, 
ILLUSTRATED BY CAROLINE HAMEL

A wonderful story to understand climate change and the importance of nature.

In this beautiful tale written by Lucie Papineau and Caroline Hamel, author-illustrator due of TheStrongest Man in the World, readers are introduced to Lucy, a little girl with a very special connection to the Earth. Lucy spends all of her free time outside and has the special ability to make the sun smile, but when the Earth gets sick, Lucy can feel its heartbeat weakening. As she mourns, Lucy’s tears land on the wings of a dragonfly who travels across the world in search of someone who can heal the Earth and Lucy.  This accessible and poetic story introduces children to the subject of climate change and the importance of protecting nature.

Lucie Papineau grew up in Quebec and was never seen without a book during her younger years! It was easy for her to move from being a keen reader to becoming a passionate author and editor. Hundreds of books later, Lucie still loves making children laugh and dream and she often travels to meet her readers around the world. Her journeys have inspired the creation of Leon the Raccoon, a young animal explorer! She also wrote a re-telling of the amazing story of Louis Cyr, her inspiration coming from her beloved father, the kindest man in the world, who often told a younger Lucy about this living legend!

When she was growing up in suburban Quebec, Caroline Hamel’s dad converted their shed into a mini-farm! Caroline drew inspiration from the animals there as she began to dabble in doodling. After studying graphic design and illustrating various press publications, this young mother of 2 soon turned her attention to children’s books. Today she lives in Montreal with her family.

The Strongest Man in the World -
THE LEGEND OF LOUIS CYR

L. PAPINEAU/HAMEL

ISBN: 978-2-7338-4614-8  •  $19.95

9” x 11 ¾”  •  Paper over board  •  44 pages
Available May 2017

The Strongest Man in the World is a true story that reads like a Paul Bunyan tall tale. Cyprien-Noé was born into a poor family in a small village in Quebec, Canada in 1863. At the age of 8 he found a 100-pound calf that was stuck in the mud, lifted it up to his chin and carried it home over his shoulders. At 12, he came upon an injured man in the woods and carried him back to his horse and wagon. News of his strength spread. He changed his name to Louis Cyr, and, at age 18, he began traveling the United States, Canada and Europe, performing increasingly impressive feats of strength. At a performance in Boston when touring with Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circuses, Cyr lifted 350 pounds with one hand. He entered contests, bested other strong men, and eventually became known around the globe as the “Strongest Man in the World”. 

A free, full- color poster featuring a timeline of Louis Cyr’s life, a list of his records, and over 15 fully captioned historical photographs featuring the strongest man in action is printed on the reverse side of the book’s jacket.
