An over-anxious wiener dog

December 12th, 2019

Winner of the 2019 Victoria Children’s Book Prize for her debut picture book, Sterling, Best Dog Ever (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, $23.50) Aidan Cassie studied animation and earned a media arts degree at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design as well as Edinburgh College of Art. “Winning the Victoria Children’s Book Prize was a fantastic shock,” she says. “I’m so lucky the jurors connected with Sterling’s story; I love thinking that as an ‘award-winner’ it may be placed in more libraries where more kids can meet this over-anxious wiener dog comically struggling with self-acceptance.” Cassie is also the author-illustrator of Little Juniper Makes It Big (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2019) and The Word for Friend (Farrar, Straus and Giroux), to be released in 2020. She lives on a small island in the Salish Sea with her tiny family and giant dog. 978-0374306144
