About this book

The Animals' Day

Barbara Klunder

Imagine that once a year all the animals living on the Toronto Island decked themselves out like people and held a party — a day for animals only. The amusing result can be seen in this charming alphabet book, where illustrations show animals up to human antics — playing instruments, cycling, boating, barbecuing, bathing and napping — on the beloved Island. The work of renowned artist Barbara W. Klunder, this book celebrates one of Canada's most cherished places.
