Read from the Book
One day a tiny phoenix was born.
There was a big flame.
Then a nest of ash.
In the nest there was an egg.
Out of the egg hatched a bird. A magical bird.
His feathers were strong like the wind,
soft like the clouds,
and red and gold like the sun.
“I am tough.
I am strong.
My name is Flare!”
From the Publisher
Flare is a tough little phoenix. He never cries. But everyone needs to cry sometimes. Will his guardians, Sun, Wind and Cloud, find a way to show him how?
The second book in the Tiny Tails series provides comforting reassurance that it's okay to express our emotions.

The Melancholic Mermaid deserves a spot on every child’s bookshelf.” ?Starred Review, Quill and Quire, “George’s narrative is ethereal and formal, with a voiceover quality that invests the artwork with cinematic flow.” - Kirkus “The Melancholic Mermaid is a perfect read-aloud for ages 4 and up, or for those who have always wished to meet a mermaid.” - The Faerie MagazinePraise and Awards for Genevieve Cote:Marilyn Baillie Award Winner, 2012General Governor’s Award for Illustration, 2007Elisabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Award 2005Communication Arts Illustration Annual 38, 40 et 41Médaille d’argent, Society of Illustrators, 2001Finaliste aux Prix du Gouverneur Général, illustration jeu
