The Best Christmas Ever

Description

Princess Amari lives amongst the jellybean coloured houses of Hopewell, a small village on the coast of Newfoundland. The princess has not been feeling well lately and doctors do not know why. So the people of Hopewell decide to cheer her up by making this Christmas extra special for her. Their love for the princess is the ultimate cure and it saves her life.

A portion of the proceeds from The Best Christmas Ever will go to the Bay St. George Sick Kids Foundation as well as the Janeway hospital.

Author Bio

Joannie Smith Coffin & Brent Coffin

Joannie Coffin is a retired health care professional, who discovered many years ago the value of sharing a message through storytelling. She hopes Princess Amaris story will show others how hope, goodwill, and imagination can bring moments of joy, even under the most difficult circumstances. Joannie lives in Stephenville, Newfoundland.

Brent Coffin is a professional artist and a person to watch in the Newfoundland art scene. Coffin is an emerging artist working in a variety of mediums, most notably oil painting and fabric art. A graduate of the Visual Arts Program at Grenfell College, he majored in Renaissance painting, a style very evident from his engaging works. Brent lives in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland.

The lesson, like always, is this: listen to your mother.

Artist Brent Coffin will confirm this. His latest work — a children’s book called “The Best Christmas Ever,” released Thursday — was created with his mom, Joannie Smith Coffin.
“It began as a short story that Mom wrote about seven years ago. She convinced me to do the book with her after she got a publisher on board,” Brent says. The book is published by Boulder Publications. “This has been the most fulfilling artistic experience of my life.”
Brent, a graduate of MUN’s visual arts program in Corner Brook who has shown his work at the Leyton Gallery of Fine Art in St. John’s is known for specializing in Renaissance painting, as well as his textile art: with his “Living Gowns” collection, he created a series of couture dresses and corsets and matching paintings.
His illustrations in “The Best Christmas Ever” maintain his Renaissance feel, with exquisite detail.
The story features Amari, a princess living amongst the jellybean-coloured houses of Hopewell, a Newfoundland outport. Amari is sick and doctors aren’t sure why, so the people of Hopewell decide to make Christmas extra special for her, in an effort to cheer her up.
It’s love from her community that becomes Amari’s ultimate cure.
A portion of the proceeds from “The Best Christmas Ever” will go to the Bay St. George Sick Kids Foundation as well as the Janeway hospital.
The book is available now in bookstores, at Costco and online, and will be officially launched with an event at The Fifth Ticket in St. John’s on Nov. 10, starting at 5 p.m.
