28 pages of full color illustrations visually charm the reader when learning about recognition and acceptance of differences among us all. In this story-poem, a boy and his friend go to a park “where dragons are nice”, and watch dragons and unicorns at play.
They identify with the dragons, who wear sneakers and play familiar games. Soon they discover a great cave where dragons and other creatures all go to school. The boys are made to feel welcome and everyone comes to understand that they will learn and in time, “…do very well.”
The boy dreams of meeting the dragons again, but “…not after dark.”
The night can be scary, especially for youngsters. In the middle of one particular night, a tiger cub named Elena is terrified when she wakes up in her cave and seeks the comfort of her Mother. Mama knows exactly what to do to make Elena feel better!
A rainbow of hats has Brenda-Louise
Oodles of hats that nobody sees.
They’re not in a closet nor under a stair,
She conjures them p from goodness knows where.
I take my sketchbook with me whenever I travel.
These images are taken from the places I’ve been on this planet and on occasion, in the caverns of my mind. I hope you enjoy sharing the adventures
In this sequel to “Within These Bonds,” Eva escapes the poverty and loneliness of the Prairies and comes to the West Coast, determined to leave her old life behind. She has changed her name, found new employment, and begins to build a new life with her family close by.
But the past has a strange way of coming back to haunt. Eva soon found the ghosts were very real, threatening and putting her in danger of losing everything she had gained. Now, with WW11 on the horizon, Eva has to find a way to cut those ties once and for all. With her family by her side and the return of an old friend, she may have a chance to succeed.
“Go ahead, play with your food”
My intention to preserve our family’s traditional recipes has morphed into a cookbook that includes many of my own original dishes and over fifty years of collected favourites. It is also a bit of a memoir, with tales of travel as well as biographies and anecdotes about friendship and fellow food lovers.
Enhanced with illustrations taken from my extensive pile of sketchbooks, or created especially for this book, each specifically selected recipe has a history. Try as many as you fancy – just for the fun of it!
