About this product
- DescriptionEmily Carr is one strange bird. She makes paintings body wants, keeps a houseful of animals, and often disappears into the woods in a tiny house on wheels. But even those used to Emily's eccentricities are surprised when she comes home from a trip to buy birdseed with a small, lonely monkey. In Emily's rambunctious household, Woo the monkey is t lonely for long. She snatches at the parrot's feathers, chases the dogs and cats - and completely wins Emily's big heart. But when Woo's mischief turns dangerous, Emily fears she may lose the little friend who brings her so much joy. Will the strength of Emily's love, and Woo's own strength, be eugh to save her? In When Emily Carr Met Woo, BC illustrator Dean Griffiths's watercolours capture the mood of the 1920's with historical details of Victoria and its surroundings. Monica Kulling, using prose as simple and expressive as Emily's own brush strokes, retells the true story of one of Canada's most beloved artists - and of her most beloved pet. The book includes historical photos throughout and concludes with a biography of Emily Carr.
