About the Book
Jocey Asnong’s West Coast book teaches letter recognition while celebrating many familiar landmarks and habitats of coastal British Columbia. Climb with cougars in Cathedral Grove, glide down groomed hills at Grouse Mountain, soar with ravens over rainforests, and watch for whale tails at Wickaninnish Beach. From Vancouver’s harbour to the beaches of Haida Gwaii, and from tidal pools to mountain summits, this early concept board book features many marine mammals, and other ocean dwellers, along with birds and other rainforest animals in showcasing the amazing diversity of this unique region.
About the Author(s)
Jocey Asnong was raised by a pack of wild pencil crayons in a house made out of paper and stories. After finishing several years of illustration school at Sheridan College, she left the land of maple trees in Ontario and moved to the mountains of Alberta so she could wear mittens most of the year. When she is not chasing her cats around her art cave, she might be caught in a blizzard near Mount Everest, or running away from wild dogs in Mongolia, or peeking out castle windows in Scotland, or sleeping under the stars in Bolivia. Jocey’s books for children include Nuptse and Lhotse in Nepal (winner of a Purple Dragonfly Award), Nuptse and Lhotse Go to the Rockies, Nuptse and Lhotse Go to Iceland, Nuptse and Lhotse Go to the West Coast, Nuptse and Lhotse in the Land of the Midnight Sun, Rocky Mountain ABCs, Rocky Mountain 123s, West Coast ABCs, and West Coast 123s. She lives in Canmore, Alberta.
