about

Canadian poet Shirley Camia presents a harrowing but exhilarating examination of life before adolescence. In a series of razor-sharp sketches, Camia’s piercing observations are offered as a perfectly balanced counter-weight to the sing-song melody of innocence. Camia and Vancouver illustrator Cindy Mochizuki offer an individual reckoning that unpacks for the reader the universal truth that fear and danger respect no age and ignore all boundaries.
Poet and journalist Shirley Camia is the author of three works of poetry:Children Shouldn’t Use Knives and Other Tales, The Significance of Moths, and Calliope. Cindy Mochizuki has created installation, performance, animation, drawings, and collaborative works that have exhibited nationally and internationally.

Editorial Reviews

"Camia peddles in subtle ambiances rather than ornate descriptions and so the slight poems tremble while casting long and enigmatic silhouettes—the collection is a shadow puppet show where small hand gestures become animated monsters. Mochizuki’s complementary illustrations conspire to create a shadowy, dreamy atmosphere." —Adele Barclay, Room Magazine
