Description

Winner of the Canadian Library Association Book of the Year Award

Young Tommy and Baby Bridget, the girl with the trillium-shaped eyes, discover that living, healing and dying are not always what they seem. And they make that discovery with the help of a wonderful cast of characters, including Crazy Mickey, Frank and the Hummer.

Award-winning author Brian Doyle spent the summers of his boyhood in the Gatineau Hills, the setting for Up to Low.

Editorial Reviews

An affecting love story told with surprising gruff tenderness and pungent detail.

— Michele Landsberg

These are special stories from an enormously talented, unassuming man, who is really a kid at heart.
