NOW IN BOARD BOOK FORMAT. An unforgettable story about an adorable elephant, featuring stunning paper-sculpture artwork.


Nancy knows she's forgotten something. Something important. When she tries to remember, she thinks of all kinds of other things instead. She remembers things she knows and things she doesn't quite know. She remembers things one way, then another. Sometimes she remembers with her ears or her stomach or even her heart. But Nancy knows she's still forgetting something. It's only when
Nancy stops thinking altogether that she finally remembers the very important thing she's forgotten. Nancy Knows is the charming story of an elephant who remembers lots of things, except the very thing she is trying to remember. Each spread of this whimsical, arresting board book features fantastic miniature paper sculptures within expressive outlines of a puzzled pachyderm. It's a book not to be forgotten.

CYBÈLE YOUNG is an award-winning children's author and illustrator and an internationally renowned artist best known for her intricate paper sculpture. She is currently represented by galleries in New York, Calgary and Vancouver. She won the 2011 Governor General's Award for Illustration, Canada's most prestigious literary prize, for Ten Birds, the first book she both wrote and illustrated. A Few Bites received starred reviews in Kirkus and Publishers Weekly, and Ten Birds Meet a Monster and Out the Window have both garnered critical acclaim. Nancy Knows won the 2015 Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award.

PRAISE FOR Nancy Knows:

"The slight tale is charming, but it is merely the vehicle for a truly beautiful and unique visual tour de force . . . It’s a work to be shared in wonderment and delight. Pure fascination." --Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews

"[I]t’s the how-did-she-do-that nature of Young’s paper constructions that will have readers returning to these pages again and again." --Starred Review, Publishers Weekly

"This story is told in simple, evocative language and is illustrated in minimalist style . . . Nancy is a charming protagonist with a memory like an elephant. She won’t be soon forgotten." --Starred Review, School Library Journal

"Nancy Knows is a great example of the power and charm of simple storytelling . . . The images are certain to appeal to any reader who is a fan of highly visual search-and-identify books such as the popular I Spy series, but Young’s interweaving of story and character with her art provides a much richer reading experience. This is the sort of picture book that has the power to create happy memories for its readers." --Starred Review, Quill & Quire
