January 04th, 2024

A diminutive and unique heroine—a damselfly-mouse-bird-moth-frog-beetle—embarks on a quest for her origin story, accompanied by rhymes and songs in Rainbees & Honeybows (Mogo Smile Books $25.00). Wendy Picken crafts a West Coast fairy tale, blending verse and mixed-medium art developed since 1988. Described as “finger painting without the paint,” Picken uses Stabilo crayon, pastel, china marker and wax polish on paper with her fingertips. The results are cheerful creations for the imagination that evoke joyful revelations in this whimsical narrative. Picken lives in Sidney, BC. 9780981067513
