|Description||About the author|
Camelia, the Canada goose with the faulty GPS (Goose Positioning System) is on the move again. This time she travels throughout the province of Nova Scotia with her eccentric Aunt, a photojournalist with the CGBC (Canada Goose Broadcasting Corporation).
While Aunt Tillie gathers stories of interest, Camelia meets many new friends including Spike the Cape D'Or porcupine, Piper the spring peeper from Kejimkujik, Larry the leatherback turtle, Cindy Crowsby the famous hockey player, and Willow the bookworm donkey. A host of other colourful characters entertain them and offer maritime hospitality.
As usual, Camelia gets distracted and lost several times. She is stranded on a beach with a Digby scallop; accidently whisked away to Sable Island on the famous Bluenose schooner; and worst of all, Camelia is lost in a pea soup fog on the Northumberland Strait and wonders if she'll ever find her favourite Aunt again. Camelia must summon all her courage and wits to find her way. Can she do it?
The humour in the first book in the series Follow the Goose Butt, Camelia Airheart! appeals to children in elementary and early junior high school. The prequel picture book Take off to Tantramar won the Alice Kitts Memorial Award for Excellence in Children's Writing.
