The Princess Who Laughed in Colours

Written by Lynn Manuel
Colour artwork by J.O. Pennanen

WALKING IN A BARREN NORTHLAND after a spell is cast upon her, Princess Winona wanders the land day after day looking for colour to break the monotony of grey and cold. Her despair is soon tempered by the company of strange creatures—whales, frost flies, and white bears. As she befriends the creatures, and they her, the warm breath of her laughter causes a range of beautiful colours to fill the sky and the spell to be broken.


 

J.O. (Judi) Pennanen

Illustrator

Judi Pennanen's artwork and illustrations have frequently accompanied books by Penumbra Press since its inception in 1979. She is also the author of her own book for children called, Heads or Tails. A resident of Huntsville, Ontario, Judi is represented in several major collections, public and private. Her subject matter very often derives from the northland itself, as in North Country Spring, from which she draws on the sights and sounds of "the landscape and its creatures, and the four seasons that create the variety and richness of the places."
