Welcome, Chantal Fournier!

We are happy to welcome children’s author Chantal Fournier and her fabulous new release, Silent Words, to the Highlighted Author. Silent Words is a particularly beautiful write up on a child’s journey of discovery to the power of words. I hope you enjoy reading this feature as much as I enjoyed compiling it!

Silent Words

3D-SilentWordsEvolved Publishing presents a wonderful journey into the discovery of language, with Silent Words, the colorful children’s picture book by Chantal Fournier (author) and Nicolas Lajeunesse (illustrator). [DRM-Free]

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.

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 husband, Nicolas. We are currently working on several other book projects, and I am in the research stage for a “grown up” novel involving cows and Nazi officers…
