Violet Lemay – On Shelves Today: My Foodie ABC

My Foodie ABC: A Little Gourmet’s Guide (written by Puck, art by Violet Lemay) will be available in bookstores as of August 31, 2010. The following review of the book appeared in the August 30 edition of Publisher’s Weekly: “Picky eaters need not apply–this abecedarian board book takes a global, to-the-minute approach to cuisine (bento box, locavore, and taco truck are among the featured words)…
Each term comes with a brief description that’s as fresh as the item described (“Watch out for the spines, since nopales come from prickly pears”). With cheery pastel-hued artwork, phonetic spellings (when needed), and a striking variety of foodstuffs, it should easily whet readers’ appetites. Ages 3–5.”

Violet lives in Gansevoort, New York, with her husband and adorable son. She occasionally teaches classes in the illustration department of the Savannah College of Art and Design, but mostly she spends her time making art for kids books and magazines.
