Product Description

In The Christmas Canoe, by Shelley Posen, P re No l arrives at an old-time Ottawa Valley lumber shanty in a flying canoe to bring Christmas to the snowbound crew. This charming turnabout of the classic Quebec folktale, La Chasse-gal rie, is told in rhyming verse la Robert W. Service. It s fun to read aloud especially when, Valley style, it blends English and French: Bonne f te, mes amis! You re unhappy, I see Passing here such a sad r veillon So I bring Christmas bonheur with my compagnons voyageurs As P re No l des chantiers I am known. Magdalene Carson s witty illustrations delight the eye. You can almost feel the cold of the swirling snow, the warmth of the shanty s camboose fire, and the breezy eddies of P re No l s great canoe as it passes overhead. Children will be enchanted by the details on every page a logger carving a doll, the different dishes in the Christmas feast, a deer watching P re No l steer his craft towards the stars. Shelley Posen is a Canadian singer and a folklorist. He wore both hats performer and scholar to blend old and new, fact and fancy, and the lore of the Ottawa Valley s Irish and French communities, to create The Christmas Canoe. Shelley invites everyone to make reading The Christmas Canoe aloud a seasonal tradition with family and friends.. Price: $12.95
