This charming trilingual (English, Ukrainian, French) picture book tells the simple little story of how Bill Kostiuk came to Canada in 1898 with his parents when he was four years old. Bill's daughter Anne Everatt, who is an accomplished artist, retells his story and illustrates it with lovely cloth collages. The book is printed on special textured paper to simulate cloth.

Review - 'The story, told by a young child, briefly recounts moving from a little house in Ukraine to Canada, where father not only builds a new house, but one that looks exactly like the Ukrainian one. The addition of a puppy to the household makes life in the new country complete. This picture book is a trilingual publication, containing Ukrainian, English, and French text. The simple narration faces colour cloth collages.' - BC Book Publishers Association review for schools, Subject Core French, Language Arts, Social Studies Audience Grades K-5
