Chinook and Winter

Written by Rhonda Hunter
Illustrated by Jayce Lamontagne
ISBN: 978-1-926506-01-2

When Winter rages in Alberta, people trust to the warming chinook winds with their promise of spring. Maybe, though, there's more to it....

Albertan author Rhonda Hunter's magical story imagines a yearly tussle between Chinook - portrayed as a playful and high-spirited young woman - and gruff Old Man Winter, with bright young Kiaya and her mother waiting for those warm winds to come. This time, though, Old Man Winter changes the rules of the game. Will his cold reign ever end?

Chinook and Winter is an enchanting, imaginative debut from Hunter, with dazzling illustrations from young prodigy Jayce Lamontagne.
