Hi John,
Gwethalyn Graham's 1938 Governor General's Award-winning novel Swiss Sonata is my fourth entry in the Challenge, but I wonder if my previous links have failed to go through, as I notice I'm not listed on the sidebar.
I am re-entering them, just in case!
Total so far: 4/13

Hi all,

I just completed my March mini-challenge and read a really wonderful picture book. It is for a book called "I am not a Number". It is at this URL: https://canadianbooksblog.wordpress.com/2017/03/10/i-am-not-a-number-written-by-dr-jenny-kay-dupuis-and-kathy-kacer-175/

I am at 175/13.

Happy Reading all!
Irene Roth

Just discovered that Kate Leth, whose Hellcat I reviewed in January, is originally from Nova Scotia, so I've added the review here.

I am at thirty-four Canadian books. I thought about "Winnie-The-Poo". Even though writer & illustrator are English, those who know the story of its creation know it is named after a black bear from my home city A Winnipeg soldier introduced Christopher Robin and his Dad to the bear. If there is no objection, I have two to read. The picture book I am submitting now is that of the great Phoebe Gilman, who left us too soon. Lastly: please change my website listing to this. The former kindly directed people to last year's run of challenges that I host. Carolyn http://cmriedel.wordpress.com/reviews-canadian/
