David Weale has been collecting the stories and sayings of Prince Edward Islanders most of his adult life, and reflecting them back in his writing and storytelling. And, despite all the superfluous layering of commercial wrapping, he still can find the gift of Christmas.

Dale McNevin's illustrations are found in many Acorn Press titles including A Long Way from the Road, An Island Christmas Reader, And My Name Is . . . Stories From the Quilt, Everything That Shines, Tales from Willowshade Farm, The True Meaning of Crumbfest, and Crosby and Me. She has written and illustrated Treasures to Find, which was sponsored by the P.E.I. Literacy Alliance. Her recent book Prince Edward Island ABC is sure to be an Island classic.
