Sid the Kid and the Dryer

(2020)
A Picture Book by

 
 
Milton the washing machine and W. P. (Whirlpool) the dryer are being delivered to a new home in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia. The pair are excited to start their new jobs in the Crosby home, and are just getting settled in to the basement when "the kid" comes home from school. Sidney straps on a pair of Rollerblades, drags out a beat-up hockey net, and starts to practice. Every now and then a loud carrong echoes off W. P.'s shiny white enamel as the puck misses the net, prompting scolds from Sidney's mother upstairs.

Eventually, the poor dryer needs to be replaced; it's missing knobs and covered in dents. W. P. doesn't want to go, and it's up to Sidney to convince his dad that sometimes, being reminded of your mistakes is a good thing.

An imaginative interpretation of the history of Sidney Crosby's famous dryer (now a popular attraction at the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame), paired with vibrant artwork from award-winning illustrator Brenda Jones, Sid the Kid and the Dryer will have young readers and sports fans cheering from the sidelines.
