Almost a Full Moon is a warm-hearted story of family, community, food and home. A boy and his grandmother host a gathering in their small cabin in the middle of winter. Friends travel from near and far, and some new friends even turn up. The walls of the cabin are elastic and the soup pot bottomless; all are welcome. Based on the lyrics of Hawksley Workman's song from his holiday album Almost a Full Moon, this book evokes both the cold and the coziness of a winter's night: crisp clean air, sparkling snow, the light of the moon, welcoming windows, glowing candles, family and friends. The spare text is beautifully complemented with the rich illustrations of Jensine Eckwall, a new talent to Tundra. She brings beauty and a hint of magic to Workman's evocative lyrics; together, they create a world and a night that will enchant readers of all ages.

In this lyrical memoir, Lily Hoy Price writes with moving detail about her childhood and adolescence in a large Chinese Canadian family in the Cariboo country of northern British Columbia. The ninth daughter in a family of 12 children, Lily is an observant child who tucks away every image of life in rugged Quesnel during the 1930s for one unforgettable tale after another. She has carefully selected many of her father's early photographs to illustrate her stories. The celebrated pioneer photographer Chow Dong Hoy left a legacy of more the 1,500 photographs taken after 1909, and created an invaluable record of the cultural diversity of the Cariboo region. With similar sensitivity and the same eye for detail, Lily Hoy Price seamlessly weaves both the innocence and expectations of a young child and the struggles of her parents, who came to Canada during the racially charged days of the imposed $100 head tax. Filled with love, confusion, family celebrations and family tragedies, these stories open a window on an era long past. Rich with the author’s own insight, the stories are at times sad and humourous, but always thoughtful and interesting. I Am Full Moon creates an intimate portrait of life in an unusual, gifted family and is a significant addition to the historical literature of British Columbia.

In this story, two significant events in Canadian history intersect: the Rollout of the Avro Arrow on October 4, 1957, and the ongoing land claims of the First Nations Mississauga. Lois Michelsen is almost fourteen when she is uprooted from her childhood home in small-town Ontario and moved to Centrewood, a brand-new, model satellite community located on the outskirts of Toronto. Her father views it as his ‘ideal city’, since its plan is based on concentric circles instead of a grid plan, which Lois prefers. Only the adjacent abandoned farm with its fallow pastureland, resurgent wildlife, winding stream and quiet woods offers her solace through the long, hot and lonely summer. There she befriends a newly hatched painted turtle, discovers a red salamander and finds herself protected by a bald-headed eagle. Concerned about Lois facing a new school alone, her mother foists on her a 'new little friend' from the neighbourhood: a little hussy named Mitsy whose ‘cat’s eyes’, sharp tongue and lewd behaviour wreak havoc. Unlike normal dreams, Lois is susceptible to 'waking visions', when real time is suspended in dual planes of reality. Her father is lead aeronautical engineer for the Avro Arrow. When she attends the Rollout in Malton, her sensibilities open her up to the ‘waking vision’ of an Indian chief standing on the tarmac next to the Arrow.
