Cadwallader sisters to launch children’s book series at the International Book Fair this weekend

The International Book Fair taking place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre this Friday, November 14 through Sunday, November 16 will host two of Trafalgar’s own alumnae. Nicole Cadwallader, Class of ’08 and sister Christina, Class of ‘11 will be there to feature their children’s book series, titled Mr. Pigglesworth.

The books evolved out of a university Project Management class where Nicole had to come up with a business plan. Her initial idea was to make and sell custom piggy banks for kids. She then decided to take advantage of a free make-your-own book as an added touch to the project. Housebound with her sister during last holiday season’s ice storm, the sisters put their bonding time to good use and had published three books before the New Year.

Soon after, the sisters launched a small clothing collection, which includes infant hats, mittens, and onesies featuring the catchy tagline ‘filthy rich, clean fun’.

“ The name Mr. Pigglesworth actually came about when I was naming my new USB, which was in the shape of a pig,” said Nicole. “My peers saw the name on the desktop and it made them smile so I thought if the name sparked their interest, I wonder what something else attached to that name could do?”

Their book series aims to teach kids about financial responsibility and help them develop a greater sense of self. Located in the Hub section booth H16 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Nicole and Christina will showcase their books and clothing, and will also be offering prizes. Drop by the Book Fair this weekend for your chance to speak with the authors!

Nicole completed a five-year Bachelor of Arts, Arts Management Specialist with a major in Studio at the University of Toronto (U of T) including a one-year internship where she learned event planning, office administration, budgeting and project management skills. She recently completed an internship with the Ministry of Training College and Universities where she was part of the Innovation Unit team and is currently enrolled in a Project Management graduate program.

Christina is currently in her fourth year of a Bachelor of Business, Finance Specialist program at U of T and was recently selected by her professor to be a facilitator after obtaining the highest mark in her Management course. This past summer, she completed a summer internship at the Financial Service Commissions of Ontario. Christina is also part of the Investment Society at U of T and is the founder and president of U of T’s Benjamin Graham Value Investing Society.
