Roy Henry Vickers is a renowned artist working in the Haida, Heiltsuk, & Tsimshian tradition. His vivid, textural art lifts this wildlife ABC board book to the level of a trip to an art gallery.

Bestselling and award-winning children's book collaborators Roy Henry Vickers and Robert Budd come together again to create a colourful West Coast alphabet board book.

With crisp, luminous illustrations by celebrated Indigenous artist Roy Henry Vickers, and a simple rythmic text, this sturdy board book introduces the alphabet using iconic imagery of the West Coast, creating a book that will be cherished by young readers and their families.

Starting with colourful sea anemones waving in the ocean current, and closing with a sunset reflected in the tidal zone, this board book supports both early literacy and children's awareness of the natural world.

Publishers Weekly described Vickers' previous collaboration with Robert Budd as "a gorgeous glimpse of the distinctive landscapes and creatures of the Northwest, that] will enchant residents and nonlocals alike."
