FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Local Author and Illustrator Team Up for “The Littlest Knight” Children’s Book Launch
OTTAWA, Ontario – May 13, 2013 – Local author Tanya Chang and illustrator Darren Bird
will be launching their debut children’s book, The Littlest Knight, at a book signing hosted by
Tag Along Toys in Kanata (Signature Centre, 499 Terry Fox Drive) on June 1, 2013 from 11am
The Littlest Knight is a tale about a young boy who longs to be a knight. When told what he must
do to fulfill his dream, Nicholas sets out on a quest to slay a dragon and become a knight. Along
the way, he makes new friends and learns that there are different ways to perceive the world
when seen through the eyes of others, and perhaps what we want isn’t always what we need.
Although written with an audience of children aged 4 to 8 in mind, The Littlest Knight is already
proving a big hit with children and adults alike as they lose themselves in the vividly illustrated
adventure which introduces fairies, elves and dragons.
The Littlest Knight is a full-colour 32-page softcover book retailing for $16, and is available
online at Etsy (via http://www.tytanima.com), at Tag Along Toys in the Kanata Signature
Centre, and from Perfect Books on Elgin Street.
