I Gave My Mom a Castle is Jean Little's first poetry collection since the still-loved Hey World, Here I Am! Most selections are prose poems, mini stories about the joys and pains of giving and receiving, featuring a wide cast of characters from toddlers to teens, with an adult or two thrown in for good measure. Jean Little is one of Canada's favorite writers for children. The author of close to forty books, she has won many major awards and captured the hearts of several generations. Her most recent books include Birdie for Now (Orca) and Orphan at My Door (Scholastic). Jean lives in Guelph with her sister, her twelve-year-old great niece, her seven-year-old great nephew, three dogs, including four-month-old Snug the Pug, two cats, two African gray parrots, and one dwarf rabbit.

Published to coincide with the release of the film Bright Star, written and directed by Oscar Winner Jane Campion (The Piano, In the Cut), starring Abbie Cornish (Elizabeth: The Golden Age) and Ben Whishaw (Brideshead Revisited, Perfume) John Keats died aged just twenty-five. He left behind some of the most exquisite and moving verse and love letters ever written, inspired by his great love for Fanny Brawne. Although they knew each other for just a few short years and spent a great deal of that time apart - separated by Keats' worsening illness, which forced a move abroad - Keats wrote again and again about and to his love, right until his very last poem, called simply 'To Fanny'. She, in turn, would wear the ring he had given her until her death. So Bright and Delicate is the passionate, heartrending story of this tragic affair, told through the private notes and public art of a great poet.

My book Poems for the Day is a compilation of Poems written at a deeply tormented time of my life. I wrote my first poems when I was on a houseboat at Smiths Creek on Hawkesbury River in N.S.W. a time that seemed to pull the Poems out of me. That was in 2007, when I wrote my first Poetry, only about six Poems in all, I have included some of them in my book for you to read. Then no more Poems until the Christmas of 2010. From Christmas 2010 through 2011, I wrote poems like Mad Woman they just poured out of me, like a waterfall, and no one was more surprised than me! A very faith filled, anxiety laced time, and at this point space doesnt permit me to go in too. Sufficient to day, writing Poetry was a very comforting pass time for me, and being a big fan and student of William Shakespeare, Poetry has always held a Special Place in my Heart right from my Grade six reader, where I discovered My Country by Dorothy McKellar. It is my hope that whoever reads my poetry will be warmed inside out of by my Poems. Poems like When someone you love is sick will help you to understand where I was coming from at a very difficult and creative time in my life. Thank you for sharing my experience, for you makes it all worthwhile!
