While exploring the shore, watching whales from the boat dipping into the salty water, Ally finds out something important: her mother loves to swim as much as she does. This is a very personal story. Ally is based on the author’s niece, Jeanie, and Ally's mother is based on the author's sister, Sarah, who went missing from the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver in 1998.

Publisher: Raven Tree Press ISBN: 9781621671404

A place where giants may bellow: "FEE, FI, FO, FUM, I SMELL THE BLOOD OF A HUMAN ONE. BE HE THIN OR BE HE FAT, FOR MY TORTILLA, I'LL GRIND HIM FLAT!" We might even solve the age old question of what happened to Jack's (Opps! Paco's) long lost Pappa.
