Number 24 is… rjfroms! Congratulations, you will be receiving a copy of Counting on Snow, as well as a set of the illustration miniatures from the book (courtesy of Maxwell Newhouse). Please check your inbox for an e-mail from me!

Once again, thank you to everyone who entered, we really enjoyed reading your responses. It’s nice to hear that everyone is staying warm this winter! Plus, I found that we have a lot in common: I love snuggling under the covers, watching a movie, reading, baking,and being close to a warm fireplace too!

Launch of: Counting on Snow

On January 15, 2011, Maxwell Newhouse hosted the launch of Counting on Snow, his latest picture book for ages 2-5. The event was held at the Chilliwack Art Gallery in the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. Here are some of the photos from the reception, courtesy of Maxwell Newhouse.

Maxwell invited local schools to attend and provided lots of healthy snacks and refreshments.

Maxwell had all the original paintings displayed from Counting on Snow for attendees to see.

He also showcased original artwork from The Weber Street Wonder Work Crew.

As well as The House That Max Built.

Here comes the rush of signings books and posters!

If you were not able to attend the launch, Maxwell Newhouse’s art installation will be on display until February 17, 2011. We recommend that you stop by to check them out!
