Discover Canada!

Hey Canada!
by Vivien Bowers
illustrated by Milan Pavlovic
(Tundra Books)

Join nine-year-old Alice, her grandmother, and her cousin Cal, on a cross-Canada road trip. Along the way, you’ll discover all sorts of facts, pictures, and trivia about each province and territory.

The trio laugh and bicker as they visit well-known tourist sites, find local flora and fauna, and keep tabs on Gran’s wayward hamster. Single-page comics celebrate Canadian history, while Cal’s tweets, Alice’s blog posts, and Gran’s bad poetry keep things lively. A Find It list in every section makes the book ideal to take along on your own road trip. You can even pretend Alice and Cal are travelling with you.

A fun, breezy way to learn about Canada.
