All the animals are awake and ready to explore the province of Ontario and the Great Lakes in this early concept alphabet book.
Make a splash in Muskoka, skate outdoors on Ottawa’s Rideau canal, help turn sap into maple syrup, grab a grilled lunch with some sea gulls, and peek through the pines at a welcoming campsite in one of the province’s many beautiful parks. Jocey’s vibrant and whimsical illustrations showcase a selection of the regional diversity found throughout this province, and of the many birds and animals that call Ontario home.
About the author
Jocey Asnong was raised by a pack of wild pencil crayons in a house made out of paper and stories. After finishing several years of illustration school at Sheridan College, she left the land of maple trees in Ontario and moved to the mountains of Alberta so she could wear mittens most of the year. When she is not chasing her cats around her art cave in Canmore, she might be caught in a blizzard near Mount Everest, or running away from wolf dogs in Mongolia, or peeking out castle windows in Scotland, or sleeping under the stars in Bolivia. Jocey’s illustrations can be found in all kinds of unusual places, as well as in the picture books Mushkid, The Princess and the Cheese, Nuptse and Lhotse in Nepal (winner of a Purple Dragonfly Award), Nuptse and Lhotse Go To the Rockies (RMB, 2014), Nuptse and Lhotse Go to Iceland (RMB, 2015), Rocky Mountain ABCs (RMB, 2016) and Rocky Mountain 123s (RMB, 2017). She lives in Canmore, Alberta.
