TOOFER & THE GIBLET WINS FIRST PLACE FABLES, AND PLACES SECOND FOR CHAPTER BOOK AT SPRING 2022 BOOKFEST AWARDS
Dragon Horse Publishing announces Spring 2022 BookFest awards for Toofer & The Giblet, the first book in a series of children’s literature written by Paulette LeBlanc and illustrated by Dmitriy Morozov, winning gold in the category of fables, and silver in the category of chapter book.
“Being awarded for my work is an honor,” said LeBlanc. “Toofer & The Giblet have been a steadying force in my life for quite some time. It’s simultaneously exhilarating and humbling to watch the world embrace them now.”
“These are the kinds of stories that leave imprints on our hearts, destined to become classics. Reminiscent of Frog and Toad, these charming tales illustrate all that is important in life. Kids will love them, but so will the adults lucky enough to be reading them out loud.”
– Firoozeh Dumas, Multi-award-winning New York Times Bestselling author of Funny in Farsi and Laughing Without an Accent.
This book of heartfelt stories is filled with expressions of a life-long friendship between the two main characters, interwoven with laughter and tears, then brought to life with brilliant illustrations. Dmitry Morozov, the illustrator commissioned for the series, is an architect by training that fell in love with watercolor. Dmitriy is an extraordinary and naturally gifted artist based in Ukraine.
“What I enjoy the most is being surrounded by children, friends, cats, and dogs. Toofer & The Giblet have been added to the list now. I’ve fallen in love with them. Morozov said. “An amazing book and with each book in the series, the magic grows.” Dmitry is currently painting book two.
