Silent Words by Chantal Fournier Book Review, Blog Tour, and giveaway (Novel Publicity)

I read Silent Words by Chantal Fournier for review by Novel Publicity. The copy and images was provided by Novel Publicity. 

Welcome to Novel Publicity's Review Only Tour for Silent Words by Chantal Fournier (Author) and Nicolas Lajeunesse (Illustrator). Read the reviews and win some great prizes for following along as we introduce you to Zelda and her world of words.

Zelda loves to talk. She loves to talk and talk, making up words along the way. One day, while visiting the park, something bad happens and Zelda can not speak. As time goes on, the words in Zelda's head fill a word/letter cloud over her head.  The word cloud starts to get bigger and bigger, to where it was knocking things over.  Zelda must find her parents to gain her voice back. I loved the book. The book was simple enough to read to the kids, yet interesting enough to read to the end (and over and over again). I love the plot and illustrations. The book is a great book. The book is available in paperback, hardback, Nook, and Kindle format.  The book is prime eligible on Amazon. 

Available NOW on Amazon and Barnes & Noble
ABOUT THE BOOK: Zelda loves to talk. She always asks a million questions and her head is full of words like apple, bunny, cartwheel and dwizzledoodle. But when a sudden storm turns Zelda’s world upside down, all her words go silent. Zelda must embark on a quest across mountains, forests and oceans to find her parents—and her voice.

This moving tale about loss and hope will tug at your heartstrings. Author Chantal Fournier’s poetic storytelling style and illustrator Nicolas Lajeunesse’s evocative artwork combine to create a poignant story in which a child discovers comfort in the power of words.

Originally from a small-ish city not too far from Montreal, I now live in Toronto, Canada, after a long stint on the beautiful Canadian West Coast, where I taught French to university students.

Silent Words, the story of a girl floating on a peculiar cloud, is my debut book. It is the fruit of a long collaboration with my artistic husband, Nicolas.

As the son of a sculptor and the grandson of a painter, art has always been a part of my life. After studying filmmaking in Montreal and working with my father for a few years, I left my French-Canadian roots and headed for the West Coast, where I discovered digital arts.

I live in Toronto, Canada, with my wife and family.
