Both Buddy books—truly the best of—now in one handsome edition!

First heard on CBC radio, Buddy the Bluenose Reindeer became an instant Maritime Christmas classic. Buddy the Bluenose Reindeer is sad because, despite his best efforts, he just can't fit in with Nick Klaus's fishing crew on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. Santa, that normally jolly proprietor of Christmas cheer, is worried because his star performer, the famous Rudolph, is sick with a bad cold! How will Santa and Buddy set everything all right?

In Buddy the Bluenose Reindeer and the Boston Christmas Tree, the search for the perfect Christmas tree to send to Boston isn't going well, and Buddy the Bluenose Reindeer is called on to help. Of course, with his nose so blue and his aim so true, Buddy easily finds the right tree. Little does everyone know that that's the easy part.

Packed full of playful puns and perfect for old and young listeners alike, Buddy's adventures are real treats to read and share aloud.

About the authors

Brenda Jones has spent years roaming the woods and fields across Canada, gathering and studying the herbs that live here in order to better understand the properties of these amazing plants. With a background as an artist and illustrator, she began painting each herb in detail to help with identification, and eventually published her first herb book, Medicinal Herbs of Eastern Canada. She has now completed the Western version, and continues to expand her own backyard herb garden, filling her cupboards with tinctures, oils, and herbal teas.
