Ali Hinch

Ali Hinch is an Illustrator and Designer living in Toronto currently working at Inhabit Education illustrating and designing educational children's literature and content.

Besides illustrating children's books basically as soon as she could run off with her Illustration degree from Sheridan College, Ali has worked on a variety of unique projects. She’s taken a puppet design and acting workshop, aided in the building of puppeteering sets and illustrated concept designs for puppets that have been featured in Roselynn Akulukjuk’s award-winning short, The Owl and the Lemming (2016) and for Taqqut Productions’ television series Anaana’s Tent. She is credited as an Illustrator in season one of Anaana’s Tent as well as having a few of her books featured in their Little Storytime segment. Ali has also worked with musicians and artists to design CDs and promos for their work, notably, she has worked on the annual Inuktut songwriting contest Qilaut from 2015 to present.

When she's not drawing, Ali wanders the streets of Toronto drinking iced tea and making new dog friends (when it's too cold out she just scrolls through dogs' Instagrams).

Simonie loves to dance! When he sees a sign for Taloyoak’s annual Christmas Jigging Dance Contest, he can’t wait to enter. But practising is hard work, and Simonie starts to worry that he won’t do a good job in front of all his friends and neighbours.

Luckily, with a little advice from his anaana and ataata, and some help from his friends Dana and David, Simonie learns how to listen to the music and dance the way it makes him feel. When the time comes for the contest, he’s ready to dance his very best.

Based on the annual Christmas dance contest in the community of Taloyoak, Nunavut, this heartwarming picture book shows how a lot of hard work—and a little inspiration—can go a long way.
