Nicola Morgan's second picture book, Pride of Lions, received the Sheila Egoff B.C. Book Prize in 1988; preceded by The Great Alphabet Book and followed by Temper, Temper. Her work is characterized by whimsical humour. A soothing bed-time fantasy, Louis and the Night Sky teaches astronomy while following a pre-schooler who magically tours the universe. It was followed by Once In A Blue Moon, about figures of speech. Morgan was born in 1959 in Victoria and lives in West Vancouver.
