When Big Bears Invade: “Children, children. Gather round, and your grandmother and I will tell you of the time before the benevolent bears showed humanity how to live in harmony with the world. A time when humans ran amok, threatening to destroy the very world we all share so happily now. A time when the Big Bears made sure humanity paid attention to their message. And it happened here, in our very own Canada.”

ABC Monstrosity: A freaky-fun book designed to thrill adults and kids alike with pages that teach and delight all at once. As each new letter is introduced with a drawing of a familiar object or animal, the previous ones are continuously combined to create bizarre and creative monstrosities. Featuring beautifully hand coloured drawings, ABC Monstrosity includes a zany glossary featuring fascinating scientific facts augmented with humour.
Alice At Naptime: A graphic novel in the truest sense of the medium, one that embodies what it means to be a parent, adjusting to the new realities of unconditional love coupled with the all consuming nature of being a new mother. Shea’s unique art style draws you into a kaleidoscopic collage of overlapping layers of art objects. Hypnotic, deeply moving, and a book that not only strikes a cord with parents, but also with anyone who has ever deeply loved.
