CM Magazine

About the Author

Carolyn Jackson has been a journalist and book editor for longer than she cares to admit. She has a Journalism degree from Ryerson University and was an editor and travel writer for newspapers before becoming editor of Air Canada’s enRoute magazine. Following fifteen years in Montreal as the editorial director of a publishing company, she is back in her hometown of Toronto where she divides her time between writing and editing and grandparenting. Her other books for children include The Flying Ark, Animals! A Big Information Book, and The Old Farmer’s Almanac for Kids.

France Brassard was born in Quebec. At a very young age, she received, in a Christmas stocking, a tiny picture book. She was enchanted and thought that it was the most wonderful gift. The magical world of illustration has fascinated her ever since. After pursuing studies in both Interior and Graphic Design, she decided to become a professional illustrator. With more than fifteen years of experience in her chosen field, France has now illustrated numerous children's books. She lives in a little city in the province of Quebec with her adorable five-year-old son, Luke.

A wonderful pick which educates as it entertains May 8 2006
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Six-year-old Maxine loves dogs, dreams of them, and wants one more than anything. She always stops for dogs on walks and loves to learn new facts from pet owner friends. If I Had A Dog covers these lessons so that young children can learn to 'read' dog language. Information embedded within the story if vet-approved information but presented in an easy style kids will readily absorb - particularly with the wonderful color drawings of France Brassard. A wonderful pick which educates as it entertains.
