The Winter issue of Canadian Children's Book News is filled with great reading recommendations for the winter months. See our 'Bookmark!' column with suggestions from five indie booksellers across the country and read the many reviews in our 'Red Leaf Literature' and 'We Recommend' sections. In this issue friends and colleagues pay tribute to the CCBC's executive director, Charlotte Teeple, who is retiring at the end of 2018. We've also included a fabulous piece by Naseem Hrab about graphic novels recommending some recent titles to share with young readers in your life and in our profile piece we chat with Faith Erin Hicks who has a diverse collection of work in the graphic novel field. Vicki Grant, Shane Peacock and Richard Scrimger share their stories about having their work reissued in 2018 and we introduce you to Wendy McLeod MacKnight who has just published her second title, It's a Mystery, Pig Face!
