Camelia Airheart is back! The endearing young Canada goose is on an adventure to the Tantramar Wetlands, in southeast New Brunswick. She is looking for “leg bling” just like the kind her Aunt Tilly has. As always, Camelia is easily distracted and needs help along the way.

In Take off to Tantramar, Camelia flies with her big brother, McCurdy, in search of the famous wetlands. There, they meet Drake, a chubby, rapping mallard duck, who can’t get enough of the “corn buffet”. While at the wetlands, Camelia and McCurdy get separated, and each has an adventure–Drake falls for an “inhabitant” of the wetlands while Camelia experiences the surprising (to her!) process of being banded, resulting in her getting a shiny leg band to call her own!

Follow the Goose Butt, Camelia Airheart! was an instant hit with children of all ages including young-at-heart adults. The early chapter book about a curious Canada goose with a faulty goose positioning system–GPS–is already in its second printing. The characters in Take off to Tantramar are brought to life through full colour illustrations by Odette Barr.
