Ruth has been a long time friend and presenter at the Telling Tales Festival and we are looking forward to seeing her again this fall! Ruth loves chatting and drawing with readers and will be featuring her latest book, Blanket (it’s her first wordless picture book) with our audience.

Did you know that Ruth has illustrated over 60 books, 21 of which she is also the author. Her books have been selected for NYC READ 365, Kirkus Reviews Best Books, the Canadian Toy Testing Council’s Great Books, the Ontario Library Association’s Best Bets, and the Canadian Children’s Book Centre’s Best Books.

She has so many wonderful books that we can’t list them all but her most recent include Choose Kindness, No Help Wanted, Scribble, and the Fox and Squirrel series. Ruth is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design and lives in Toronto, Ontario.
