Welcome to the new Boissevain Books Blog and Website. As our current customers know, Boissevain Books was formed by the literary estate of Hilda van Stockum, the celebrated author and illustrator of more than thirty books for children and teens. Although our core mission is to introduce Hilda's works to new generations of readers, we are also focused on publishing new works, for both children and adults. This year we've published two new titles, the first, The Box House, is geared to adults, particularly young adults. It's the inspiring and touching story of an abused child's experience growing up in poverty in 1960s England, and her ability and determination to survive. It was written by Brigid Marlin, one of Hilda van Stockum's daughters, who is herself an accomplished artist.  Our second new book,  Princess Josephine and the Rainbow Dragon, written by Kate Bodsworth and illustrated by Brigid Marlin, will launch this week.  It's a beautifully written and illustrated story for children that features a strong, yet compassionate, young princess who must challenge a Dragon that has taken all of the color from the world. Please visit our bookstore to learn more about these titles and our other books.
