Description

If ever you go travelling
On EveryBody Street
You'll see EveryBody's Different
Than EveryOne you meet

Sheree Fitch's playful words lead you into this beautiful children's book and invite you to celebrate our gifts, our weaknesses, our differences, and our sameness. Fitch displays her wit and mastery of words in quick, rollicking rhymes that are complemented by Emma Fitzgerald's lively illustrations. EveryBody's Different on EveryBody Street was originally produced in 2001 as a fundraiser to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the Festival of Trees in support of the Nova Scotia Hospital and to raise awareness for mental illness and addiction.

Editorial Reviews

"With a style reminiscent of Quentin Blake, FitzGerald's illustrations of people letting their freak flag fly complement Fitch's exuberant, playful, and poignant rhymes." —Quill & Quire (Toronto, ON)


"Fitch's lyrical prose is enhanced by the very beautiful illustrations of Emma FitzGerald. The illustrations are done in bold and bright colors, and are very rich in detail which provides a superb backdrop for this poem about individual differences." —Canadian Materials Magazine (Winnipeg, MB)
