New this week
Everyday is like Christmas at Parry Sound Books as we open boxes of new books arriving each day, and that is especially true at this time of year when most books are published, and we are ordering books that we think you will want to give when that gift giving time of year arrives. No rush for the snow, the weather we’ve had this past week is just fine for another month or two. One of the most beautiful books for children came in the door today – I immediately chose one for my grandson and ordered a lot more. Once Upon a Northern Night written by Jean E. Pendziwol and illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault is the perfect combination of text and illustration - a poem expressing love and comfort for a child with exquisite illustrations of the northern landscape. You will want one for every child in your life.
One of our favourite author and illustrator of children’s books is Oliver Jeffers. This Moose Belongs to Me just arrived in paperback – another must have for the little ones in your life.
Also, just in the door today is the season’s most beautiful cookbook – The Flavour Principle, sub-titled Enticing Your Senses with Food and Drink, by Lucy Waverman and Beppi Crosariol. We know this team from the LCBO magazine and many other magazine and newspaper columns. Here they have put together a big beautiful book full of mouth-watering recipes and advice about the perfect wine to serve with each dish.
