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.
He sang,
“I am tough.
I am strong.
My name is Flare!”

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Melancholic Mermaid—also by Kallie George:Publisher's Weekly: Bullying Resources, part of an Anti-Bullying Feature, recommends The Melancholic Mermaid?”Ideally suited for children transitioning from picture books into shorter chapter books. George’s poetic rhythms perfectly capture the lulling melancholy of the seashore.” - Deakin Review? “The delicately detailed illustrations are filled with the bright and varied colors of the sea.” - Little One Books “The Melancholic Mermaid is a unique and beautiful story of rejection, friendship, and young love.” - CM Magazine, 4/4 stars, Highly Recommended “This unusually smart and sensitive story doesn’t shy away from revealing the lonely facts of life for misfits.” ForeWord Magazine Reviews “Make room next to The Little Mermaid and The Ugly Duckling. 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 jeunesse (2003 et 2000)Grand Prix d’Illustration Jeunesse GL&V (2000)Applied Arts Magazine Awards (2000, 1999)Society of Publication Design (1998)Advertising & Design Club of Canada (1999, 1997)Médaille d’argent, Studio Magazine Awards (1996)Society of Newspaper Design (1994, 1992)Grand prix du magazine québécois, (1994)Médaille d’argent, CAPIC Awards (1994)Médaille d’or, Studio Magazine Awards (1993)
