Inspired by Grant Lawrence’s bestselling memoir Adventures in Solitude (Harbour, 2010), his humourous, adventure-packed picture book for children aged 4-7, Adventures in Desolation Sound (Harbour $24.95), follows the Lawrence family on a trip to their rustic cabin in BC’s remote Desolation Sound. Initially reluctant, young Lawrence and his sister Heather prefer city life and TV. The long, winding drive makes them sick, and upon arrival, the cabin is dark, the toilet is outside, and the neighbors seem odd. However, the kids gradually discover the magic of the place, enjoying exciting and hilarious adventures. They gain confidence and learn there’s more to life than television, eagerly anticipating their return next summer. The book was illustrated by Ginger Ngo. 9781990776878
