Hey Canada!

Rights Sold
World rights, Tundra Books 2012

Gran has decided that she is taking nine-year-old Alice and eight-year-old Cal on a road trip across Canada.  With a sparkling combination of poems, silly songs, tweets and blogs, the trio records the trip for readers everywhere to share. From Newfoundland to the Pacific Ocean, the gang in Hey Canada! offers a delightful way to learn about vast, varied, and surprising Canada. The book combines narrative, poems, photos, comics about historical events like the battle at Fortress Louisburg, maps (including provincial flags, birds, and flowers), in a lively, easily accessible format. Not only great fun to read, this is a valuable resource for young Canadians and for visitors across the country.
