Regina poet Bruce Rice launched his latest with a birthday cake earlier this month, complete with puppet show fixings on the side.

Bruce's new book, Dorothy McMoogle with Kumquat and Bugle, is aimed at a slightly younger audience than his other four collections of poetry... This one is a story in rhyme aimed at those aged four to nine.

Artist Wendy Winter and Kaira Barabanoff Lund (the model for Winter's drawings of Dorothy) were on hand to share in the readings.

The event also featured a second picture book, Goldeneye and Funnyfin and a puppet show starring those two fish, produced by staff at Regina's Connaught Library where the launch was held.

Both books are published by Barbara Kahan's Wild Sage Press.
