Alexander Finbow - Monday, September 14, 2015

Where did summer go? Feels like it slipped into the past far too quickly this year. On the plus side, September does mean that learning is once again front and centre in the minds of many people young and old and whether you have great teachers or a lunatic who does a great praying mantis impression, finding the right learning materials is important for everyone. For Canadians, and those interested in learning about Canadian history, we have three books perfect for you. Our latest publication, The Loxleys and Confederation hardcover graphic novel, is the story of Canada Day written By Mark Zuehlke and illustrated by Claude St. Aubin. It's a great gateway story to finding out how Canada became a country against the backdrop of the American civil war, the Fenian raids, trade embargoes and immigrant expansion across the north. Canadian Materials magazine called it RECOMMENDED in their review this month,'The Loxleys and Confederation will appeal to young readers, including reluctant readers who may be more comfortable with a graphic novel rather than a more text-heavy history-based work', here's the link to read the full review.

The true story of Robbie Burns

Alexander Finbow - Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Looking back through my emails, I see that it was a little over 3 years ago when Gordon and Emma first pitched their idea for the graphic novel Robbie Burns: Witch Hunter to me. Their pitch was very good, the kind of idea that makes you wonder why no one has written it before. There is always the risk that a good idea can be lost along the creative process way, delivering something that doesn't live up to the promise originally offered. Of course, the track record of the writers coupled with Tiernen Trevallion's artwork, made this a fairly safe bet. Now, looking at the hardcover book in my hands, I am really happy to tell you that it more than lives up to the original promise, I would go as far to say that it has surpassed my hopes. Robbie Burns: Witch Hunter is a great story, beautifully told.
