Sheree Fitch: Reviving Sleeping Dragons

Monday, December 15, 2008.

You could say that Sheree Fitch became a part of our family long before we met her in 2006.  Ahhh… the mark of a great author, that their books are so good that you wake up with them each morning, hang out with them all day and go to bed with them at night.  That’s what made it so sad when we found out that a large portion of Sheree’s books were no longer in print.

In November 2006, we spent a few hours with Sheree when she was in Ottawa.  We talked about children’s books and our daughter Lucy read aloud the amazing book Sleeping Dragons All Around.  We brought Mocha Maple Chocolate cupcakes as a treat.  And so began our campaign to have Sleeping Dragons reprinted.

On this edition of Just One More Book!!, author Sheree Fitch talks about the 20th anniversary edition of Sleeping Dragons All Around, being the author of a book that’s reaching a second generation and how Sleeping Dragons became and will always be a part of a family that suffered a tragic loss.

This is the second in a two-part series about Sleeping Dragons All Around. In part one, we replayed our original review of Sleeping Dragons, complete with questionable recording quality.

I don’t know quite how you folks found me to tell me this essential news but I am so glad to hear it. Love the podcast and am delighted to have found just one more book.

I am — in another life — a librarian with the Vancouver School Board. I think I better let all the teacher-librarians know about the great work this site represents!

thanks a lot

This interview is really inspiring and moving. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading “Sleeping Dragons All Around”, but now that I’ve listened to your podcasts and read about the book, I can’t wait to get my hands on it. I have eight grandchildren between the age of 2-9. I know they’ll love it having it read to them or reading it to their younger siblings.
