A Picture Book by

 
 
Jean-Yves Ahern (illustrator). First English Edition. 8vo - over 73/4" - 93/4" tall. The Tortoiseshell and the Pekinese don't get along - they fight like cat and dog until one day. . . Gabrielle Roy was one of Canada's best-loved writers. Her writing is a quest for the more humble pleasures of life, a quiet affirmation of faith in humanity. In this book, she invites us to share her dream of peace among all peoples on Earth, and her conviction that children are our greatest hope for its realization. First published as 'L'Espagnole et la Pekinoise' by Les Editions de Boreal in 1986. Originally written by Roy (one of Canada's most respected writers) in the 1970's and later revised and edited by her, it was published in French 3 years after her death in 1983. Translated by Patricia Claxton
