Description

This volume in the Where We Live series explores the challenges faced by a boy who moves to a new and alien city. For Cedric, it's a big and often bewildering change to move from Jamaica to industrial Hamilton, Ontario. As he gradually becomes one of the North End kids, his adventures involve a fierce bicycle race, an all-day hockey game, and Anansi folktale and the theft of a toy Mountie. Cedric and the North End Kids is a lively, rough-and-tumble account of growing up and making friends in a big, gritty city.
