Orca Book Launch

Come One, Come All to Tall Tales Books

On Saturday, May 15, Orca will launch three of its spring 2010 titles at Tall Tales Books, a wonderful children’s bookstore in Victoria, BC. Robin Stevenson, Sylvia Olsen and Mike Deas will be on hand to sign copies of their latest books for readers ages 7–12.
In Ben’s Robot by Robin Stevenson, Ben discovers that having a bossy friend isn’t that much fun, even if it is a real walking, talking robot.
Sylvia Olsen’s A Different Game, is the sequel to Murphy and Mousetrap. Murphy and his three friends are nervous about trying out for the soccer team at their new school, but a diagnosis of leukemia proves more challenging than anything they encounter on the field.
Food Fight is the fifth installment in the popular Graphic Guide Adventures series, all written by Liam O’Donnell and illustrated by Mike Deas. In this exciting story, Devin and Nadia stumble upon a conspiracy involving genetically modified food and unscrupulous scientists. (Visit the Food Fight website for resources, games and other fun, free stuff.)
Come meet the authors, get your books signed and watch a drawing demo from artist Mike Deas. Or, just drop by for a snack!
