Cary Fagan and Andy Jones know how to talk to kids. Both are acclaimed storytellers and the authors of popular series with more than a few tricks up their sleeves. Jones is a comedian and Gemini award-winning writer and actor. He’s also written six children’s books that bring Newfoundland fairy tales to life. In the latest book in the Jack series, young readers encounter wacky spells, hairy giants, magic animals and hijinks galore. Fagan, an award-winning author for both children and adults, introduces us to Wolfie and Fly in his new series about a girl who thinks friends just get in the way, until she meets the slightly weird and wordy boy next door. There’s a world of fun to be had with these funny and imaginative authors.
