The Very, Very Far North is a Best Books selection!

Duane the polar bear and his friends were included in the latest Best Books issue that is published bi-annually by the Canadian Children’s Book Centre.

Do check it out. It makes for a fun family read in a time when families are together quite a lot.

North Carolina Battle of the Books

The Very, Very Far North has been included in the line-up of books to be read by students all across the state in their 2020-2011 Battle of the Books. I believe I’m the only Canadian author on the list, so go TEAM POLAR BEAR!

The Guilford County School District requested a recorded greeting, allowing me the opportunity to introduce the book to their students.
