Heads or Tails

Judi Pennanen

9 X 8 inches, 24 pages

LEON WAS JUST AN ORDINARY LION lazing around on the hot and sunny plains of Africa, when one day his tail began to talk. Heads or Tails is a playful story of disagreement with a simple solution—compromise.

For several years Judi Pennanen's artwork has been a distinguishing feature of Penumbra Press publications. Her remarkable versatility as an artist is evident in the list of poetry, fiction, and children's titles she has illustrated and helped shape. It is fitting that she ought to be both the illustrator and author of her own book. Heads or Tails is the perfect vehicle for the effort of her talents because in its own way it plays upon the idea of dual pursuits.


J.O. (Judi) Pennanen

Author, Illustrator

Do I Have To Go To Sleep? is J.O. Pennanen's tenth illustrated book for Penumbra Press. Her illustrations for children's books are often described as whimsical and lyrical, while her artwork
for adult literature is edgy and dark. Having lived in northern Ontario and New
Brunswick, she currently resides in southwestern Ontario.
Judi's art is represented in several major collections, public and private. Her subject matter very often derives from the northland itself, as in North Country Spring, from which she draws on the sights and sounds of "the landscape and its creatures, and the four seasons that create the variety and richness of the places."
