Boomer the Pig has been training hard for the Animal Olympics, so when he loses his first race, he shrugs it off and cheerfully moves on. One event after another, Boomer keeps losing, and the frustration begins to get to him. But even after coming in last in every sport, there's no getting this Olympig down. It's just great practice for the Winter Games! This encouraging and hilarious story is for every kid who's ever been told "you can't win 'em all."

Review:

Praise for Olympig!

"A humorous romp."--Publishers Weekly

"Jamieson's acrylic illustrations create a cast of characters that express themselves clearly; there is a quality of comic melodrama to the sequence of Boomer's trials. Asides in amusing speech balloons add to the fun."--Children's Literature

"Jamieson snatches moral victory from the jaws of athletic defeat with warmth, satirical wit, and old-fashioned silliness. Her drawings and formats are wonderfully varied, colorful, and bursting with personality. Subtle, funny commentaries will be appreciated by slightly older readers, stretching Olympig's appeal."--School Library Journal

Praise for Roller Girl

A New York Times Bestseller
A Spring 2015 Indie Next Pick

"Roller Girl's message of self-discovery, friendship, and perseverance will roll its way right into your heart." --Raina Telgemeier, New York Times bestselling author of Sisters

"This spiky, winning graphic novel captures the bittersweetness of finding a new passion and saying goodbye to your former, more uncertain self."--New York Times Book Review

* "Jamieson captures this snapshot of preteen angst with a keenly decisive eye, brilliantly juxtaposing the nuances of roller derby with the twists and turns of adolescent girls' friendships...Full of charm and moxie--don't let this one roll past."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "The story will engage readers... Offer this comic to fans of Telgemeier's Smile and Laura Lee Gulledge's Page by Paige."--School Library Journal, starred review

* "Readers will stand up and cheer."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "Jamieson's dialogue captures coming-of-age...so authentically"--Horn Book, starred review

* "[A] sharp and engaging graphic novel"--BCCB, starred review

"Visually, Roller Girl is very appealing--think Lynn Johnston with a modern edge--but it's the storytelling that really sets this graphic novel apart...A great choice for tween girls, whether they're remaking themselves, renegotiating friendships or just weathering the stormy seas of early adolescence."--Chicago Tribune
