A Northern Alphabetby Ted Harrison
A is for Arctic, B for Bering Sea, C for Clyde River – and Z for Zangeza Bay – all to be explored above the 60th parallel.
"Every child needs at least one alphabet book and none is more beautiful.... From A to Z, Harrison creates an enduring work of art." --Toronto Star
"[A] sophisticated alphabet book...." --Canadian Children's Book News
"It is definitely a 'keeper' in my library. Highly Recommended." --CM Magazine
"This takes you through the alphabet with alliteration, with all sorts of references to objects and habitat and animals in the North. It's absolutely a beautiful book. It's a real Canadian keepsake..." CTV British Columbia
"By the time children outgrow this book, they will know much more about the world than the alphabet." --Maclean's
"A gorgeously illustrated book that works.... Although uniquely original, the paintings somehow remind me of both Emily Carr and William Kurelek at the same time.... A bright, beautiful, and imaginative addition to the growing collection of peculiarly Canadian alphabet books." --Canadian Materials
