Monsieur Pierre is an award winner! L O Annie Press is thrilled to announce that Monsieur Pierre has been honored by the Colorado Independent Book Publishers Association with its respected award of merit for Children’s Picture Books.

The Association was founded 35 years ago to support authors, independent publishers and publishing professionals with cooperative ventures, education and networking.  One doesn’t need to live in Colorado to take advantage of their resources. Here’s a selection of their articles for authors:

Monsieur Pierre tells of Monsieur Pierre, a lonely octopus, surrounded by international tourists at his Parisian fountain home, who embarks on a search for a friend. His adventure begins among the landmarks of Paris and ends with California’s scenic wonders. Lively, humorous illustrations chronicle his surprising encounters with the City of Light and the Golden State.  Monsieur Pierre has become popular with parents, teachers and, most-importantly, 3 – 5 year olds. The book is available from or by special order at your local bookstore.
