My Grass Head Friends

Meet my grass heads. Their hair is made of grass. Some of them have names like Sally, Frank, Lollipop and little Ceasar, the cyclops.

I glued on dresses and eyes and I put on hair accessories. I water them every day because they are alive and grow.

Soon I will have to transplant them into a bigger pot.

Meeting Keith Halliday

Meeting our Favourite Author 

Mom, Logan, and I were on a plane to Whitehorse, Yukon. On the seat beside us sat Keith Halliday the author of our favorite books Aurora of the Yukon, Super Secret Agents, Yukon River Ghost, and Game on Yukon.

          The first book Aurora of the Yukon is about a girl named Aurora (9) and her little brother Yves (6) as they move to the Yukon with their Maman after their dad died at the time of the Klondike Gold Rush. Aurora has a lot of adventures as she settles down to a new life. The other 3 books describe the exciting adventures of Aurora and her siblings in the Yukon in the years after the Gold Rush.

I was surprised to see Keith Halliday on the plane. We asked him if he was the author of the amazing books and he said that he was. We told him how much we enjoyed reading his books and that we visited most of the places that the characters went to.

Keith was glad to hear that we really liked his books and he sent us a Podcast link of his daughter reading Aurora of the Yukon. We definitely did not expect to see one of our favorite authors on the plane.

          If you’d like to listen to the exciting book, here is a link to the Podcast.
