Prince Edward Island in pictures

My Island Pictures: The Story of Prince Edward Island
by A. L. Morrison

A. L. Morrison's folk-art style paintings are this book's main attraction. They depict a Prince Edward Island of bygone days. Morrison's family stories and his anecdotes about early Island history, which provide context to the pictures, may not be as interesting to child readers. However, his paintings, which are colorful and sometimes dramatic in their small scale, invite close inspection, ensuring new discoveries with repeat viewings.
