For most of this country's history, Canadian children's literature, with the exception of such notable authors as Charles G.D. Roberts, Ernest Thompson Seton, L.M. Montgomery, and Grey Owl (Archibald Belaney), was not a 'growth industry'. British and American books were readily available andhad already achieved approval in the centres of intellect or fashion. More recently, however, with a larger and more diverse population and with the support of numerous publishers specializing in the field and a growing list of annual awards to honour excellence in both writing and illustrating,Canadian children's books have become an important part of our ongoing literary culture. Canadian authors and illustrators, from Farley Mowat and Mordecai Richler to Gordon Korman, Monica Hughes, William Kurelek, and Dennis Lee, have become among our best-known cultural exports.In Canadian Children's Books, Professors Raymond Jones and Jon Stott provide teachers, librarians, and other educators, parents and relatives, and students of children and of children's literature with a comprehensive and detailed examination of this now rich field. Each of the 133 entries onauthors and illustrators presents factual and critical information along multiple dimensions. In addition to authors and illustrators of historical and contemporary importance in the English mainstream, creators of ethnic, Aboriginal, and French-Canadian origin also are included. There arerepresentatives of regions--the North, the East, the West, and the rest between--and of all genres: retold folktales and myths, mystery, science fiction, fantasy, sports, wilderness adventure, animal epic, chapter books, picture books, poetry, stories for reluctant readers. Appendices list thewinners of the major English-Canadian children's book awards and sources for further reading.

Three storybooks in one: Meet the lovable turtle who inspired the beloved Franklin and Friends TV show! Franklin in the Dark In the Franklin Classic Storybook that started it all, poor little Franklin has one of the most common childhood afflictions—he is afraid of the dark. This is particularly difficult for Franklin as he happens to be a turtle, and the darkness he fears is, of course, inside his own shell. Bravely, with shell in tow, he sets forth to seek help and in the course of his travels discovers a bird who is afraid of heights, a polar bear who is afraid of the cold, and even a hydrophobic duck. In the end, Franklin discovers that everybody, even his own mother, is afraid of something, and his response to what he has learned is guaranteed to draw a smile. Franklin Says I Love You In this Franklin Classic Storybook, our hero is a very lucky turtle. He has the best friends, the best little sister, the best goldfish, and, of course, the best mother. But when he discovers that his mother’s birthday is coming up, he can’t find the best present. After giving it some serious thought, Franklin decides to do everything for his mom. On the morning of her birthday he takes her breakfast in bed, makes a brooch, draws a picture, and cuts fresh flowers from the garden! And then Franklin gives his mom a great big hug and says, “I love you”—which is, of course, the best gift of all. Franklin and the Thunderstorm In this Franklin Classic Storybook, Franklin is afraid of thunderstorms. When a storm approaches while he is playing at Fox’s house, a flash of lightning sends Franklin into his shell. He refuses to come out—even for snacks—until his friends make him laugh with their tall tales about what causes storms. And when Beaver explains what really causes thunder and lightning, Franklin begins to feel much safer.
