Let your imagination soar with this delightful book selection
Enjoy stories from authors and illustrators that will be presenting at the Telling Tales Festival. Over the summer catch up on some great books; then meet the author in person this fall!
There are lots of books to choose from – and for all age groups. So whether you like poetry, picture books, action, culture, novels, summer fun, far away adventures or zombies – you’re sure to find something interesting to read!
Take our reading list with you to the library, or your favourite book store, and read up on some of the entertaining children and young adult books that will be featured at this year’s festival. Then you’ll be prepared to ask the presenters questions – and even get their autograph.
Support talented Canadian authors and illustrators. You may even find a new favourite!
So find a comfy, shady spot outside or a cozy, quiet place indoors and get lost in a good book.
Extra Bonus: After reading one of these books you can write a book review for our Telling Tales Press Club. We’ll even publish it on our website! We would love to hear what you think of any of the books on this list. So draw a picture, make up your own book cover, or even write your own story. Find out more about the Press Club.
