Melvin is excited to announce he is now is Chapters, Indigo and Coles bookstores as well as a lot of independent book stores throughout the Maritimes. Heather will be doing book signings for Melvin in Chapters stores in January. He has been included in the "Atlantic Canadian Books for the Holidays" guide as well so any book store can order Melvin in for you.
Of course you can still get me directly from the publisher at www.brylerpublications.com
Melvin is feeling quite excited inside! He is suddenly seeing Christmas stuff everywhere and he feels the excitement. Melvin loves all the green and red colors that symbolize Christmas. The red makes him feel safe and secure and the green makes him feel love. Together the two colors make Melvin feel confident that he is loved by everyone!
What a loving time of year!

It's Remembrance Day in Canada and Melvin just wants to say that he sees all your red poppies and feels the emotions. Melvin thinks the red poppy really symbolizes a sense of safety and security and that for many people, and in many times, people who have worked to protect their country have helped provide that sense of safety and security for others.
Melvin particularly likes the white symbols of Remembrance Day - the white doves in particular, because white represents peace.
So it's a sense of peace Melvin shines back down on everyone.

Melvin made some special new friends over the weekend. Heather went to Pier 22 in Halifax to sign books while the Queen Mary 2 ship was in dock.
Along came 2 year old Jasmine in her stroller. She really wasn't that happy to be in her stroller and maybe was a bit tired of shopping. So while her parents were looking at books, Jasmine let Heather read Melvin's Balloons to her. She sat still as anything through the entire book. She liked the coyote (wolf to her) and once again, the purple page! When Heather finished reading it, Jasmine said "Read again"!! Made our day! Her parents promised to read Melvin's Balloons to her again that night before bed. So when Jasmine gets home to Portsmith England Melvin will be with her.
