How Dog Became A Friend
Author: Paul O'Neill
Format: Paperback
  • Today dogs are considered man’s best friends, but thousands of years ago the world was a very different place and dogs were animals to be feared. This all changes one autumn day when a young brother and sister wander too far from home and are captured by the Old Hag of the Wilderness. The terrified young children beg passing animals for help, yet none will come to the rescue. But then Dog comes along . . . Accompanied by charming watercolour illustrations, How Dog Became A Friend tells an enchanting story of how Dog left his cold and barren home to come and live among people.


Mingan My Village
Format: Paperback
  • Illustrator Rogé visited a school in Mingan, an Innu village in northeastern Quebec. He spent a few days taking the time to photograph each child. Once he returned home to his studio, brush in hand, he revisited the eyes of these children and drew their portraits.

    MINGAN my village is a collected of fifteen faces, and fifteen poems written by young Innu. Given a platform to be heard, the children chose to transport readers far away from the difficulties and problems related to their realities to see the beauty that surrounds them in nature.

    First published in French as Mingan Mon Village in 2012, which won several awards and nominations, including:

    Winner, 2013 Prix des libraires du Québec jeunesse (5-11 years category)
    2013 Governor General’s Award, French Children’s Illustration finalist
    Finalist, Prix TD de Littérature Canadienne pour L’enfance et la Jeunesse 2013
