Jada Fitch (Illustrator) A Snowy Owl Story
Those staring eyes of a Snowy Owl on the cover will grab lots of readers for Melissa Kim's new book, A Snowy Owl Story, published by Islandport Press in Yarmouth. The cover illustrations and others in the book were done by the obviously-very-talented Jada Fitch of Portland.
This is a children's board book and the first in a series called "Wildlife on the Move." The series is a partnership between Islandport Press and Maine Audubon.
The "Wildlife on the Move" series will bring engaging stories about wildlife migration, conservation and respectful human interaction with nature to a Pre-K through second grade audience. Melissa Kim is working with Audubon naturalists to create scientifically accurate stories. What a great idea!
"Most books for the pre-K audience are very basic natural history books that simply recite facts about animals" says Kim. "These books tell stories about specific wildlife, how and why they move and what role people can play in their lives. "
Jada Fitch grew up in a family-built log cabin in Sebago, Maine. Much of her childhood was spent attending art classes, doing craft projects, and building forts at her grandparent's general store. She majored in Illustration at the Maine College of Art, then spent a couple of years soaking up the sun in Los Angeles. She is the author and illustrator of the children's book, "Tea with Hazel." She now resides in Portland, Maine, with her husband, Philip, and dog, Daisy. When she's not at her desk drawing, she's usually out birding, or knitting and watching nature documentaries.
