Iris and Cora
Adventures of the Tall Cousins
by Jennifer Paquette

Cousins Iris and Cora love being tall. They love it so much they formed a club! Then one day, when faced with hurtful words, Iris begins to question her feelings about being tall. As Iris’s confidence sinks, Cora’s love for her soars — lifting them both to new heights. A fun and uplifting story for young readers that reminds us we are what we think and illustrates that when we know this, the sky’s the limit! “Exuberant, funny and openhearted - delightfully illustrated and beautifully told.”—Actor and award-winning lyricist, Marion Adler "A whimsical adventure ... Offering a fantasy spin, this engaging tale encourages readers to accept themselves and others.”—Kirkus Reviews "Delightful and dreamy, a book that's as beautiful as it is insightful. An uplifting lesson for kids that we are what we think and knowing that is the way to success. The dual focus on family bonds and celebration of self makes this one a winner.” —The Prairies Book Review
