Description

From patchwork-quilt farmland to the winding red roads, from sandy beaches to the endless stars at night, Apples and Butterflies shows Prince Edward Island shining in the bright blue and gold light of fall. Shauntay Grant's award-winning poetry and Tamara Thiébaux Heikalo's rich and wild illustrations pull the reader towards the wide-open space of the island. New softcover edition.
