Bertha Thorne was born in the Canadian Province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Her first book, It's Like a Dream to Me, featured the life of her then 100-year-old father, Paddy McCarthy. With the release of her children's book, The Scaredy-Cat Penguin, Thorne has come full circle with her age groups! The book was inspired by a short story written by her 8 and 10 year-old grandsons, Liam and Owen. Using a loveable little penguin as the central character, the book shows kids how to face their scary moments and then overcome them.
