MONTREAL, Oct. 5 /CNW Telbec/ - Next week, Pirouli publishing house is
launching Nana, What Do You Say? Book One, the first of a three-volume
collection of children's books, written and illustrated by award-winning jazz
vocalist Ranee Lee.
Intended for children between the ages of 5 and 12, Nana, What Do You
Say? focuses on the unique bond that exists between grandchildren and their
grandparents. Written in the interactive form, from the child's perspective,
the story is meant to favour dialogue between generations.
The book was inspired by Ranee Lee's personal experience and conceived
from her song Nana, What Do You Say? released on the CD I Tought About You,
which was nominated for a Juno Award in 1995.
The manuscript was read to grade-school students and teachers and
received highly enthusiastic reviews on their part.
Two launches will take place: October 9 at Del Canale Bistro; and
October 12 at Jean-Talon Market. Excerpts will be read in both English and
French, and Film Director André Leduc will present a videoclip of the book. On
October 12, renowned visual artist Armand Vaillancourt will transform the room
into an enchanted area.
Pirouli is a young publishing house specializing in children's
literature, more particularly in collections. Publications include Aixa
(Aixa Sand Castles and Aixa Snow Castles), translated in four languages, and
