Lisa Dalrymple has lived with chickens in South Korea, a cat in Scotland and a gecko in her shower in Thailand, but she has never EVER shared a home with a polar bear. She now lives with her husband in Ontario, Canada. They have three energetic and imaginative kids who it would be only right to credit as co-creators of many of her children's stories.
Lisa is the author of Skink on the Brink which won the SCBWI Crystal Kite Award for Canada 2014 and which was also nominated for a Rainforest of Reading award in Grenada. Jungle Jitters, her debut novel for middle grade readers, will be published by Orca Book Publishers in March 2017.

Fierce by Lisa Dalrymple
"The back cover invites the reader to meet 10 remarkable women you’ve probably never heard of who shaped Canada. What an intriguing invitation! From Margurite de la Roque in 1542, to Ttha’naltther in 1713, and through the decades to Mona Parsons in..." Read more of this review »

A beautiful book that takes the poem "First They Came" and ends it on a hopeful, optimistic note that will speak to young readers, encouraging them to think about what it would take for them to be one of those who stand up.

Beautiful lyrical language that brings Imogen's character to life through music. A well-crafted story that I know I'll continue to inhabit for a long while even though I've already finished the book.
