Geneviève Côté

 

 

Enfant, Geneviève Côté adorait dessiner. Elle s'inventait des histoires simplement pour le plaisir de les illustrer. Au fil des ans, elle a continué à nourrir sa passion pour le dessin et les arts, si bien qu'elle a décidé d'en faire une carrière. Après avoir étudié les arts et la communication au Cégep, elle a terminé, en 1987, un baccalauréat en infographie à l'Université Concordia, à Montréal. Geneviève a illustré plus de 25 livres pour enfants. Comme auteure-illustratrice, elle a publié chez Scholastic Quel éléphant? et Je suis là, Petit Lundi. Elle a reçu le Prix du Gouverneur général pour ses illustrations en 2007. Geneviève vit à Montréal et travaille dans un atelier du centre-ville.

Excerpt

From Shooting Star Rider by Nayoung Jin, will illustrations by Geneviève Côté:
One warm summer night, a shower of shooting stars swept across the sky. Elinor looked out of her window and made a wish.
"Make grandpa well."
And she waited. And waited. And waited.
Then one morning, Elinor found a postcard on her windowsill.
It read:
Dear Shooting Star Wisher on Earth,

Please don't wait for miracles from shooting stars anymore.

Sincerely,
