Vaughan, Garth, Smith, David Preston


Somewhere in the Annapolis Valley in the late 1800s, young Tommy is dreaming of a new pair of block skates. In winter, he watches while his friends and siblings play and skate on the frozen pond. Being the youngest in his family, he has to wait to have a pair of skates for his very own. This being the age of bartering, and the age of the local blacksmith, Tommy's father strikes a deal with the blacksmith, Claude Smith: new fence posts in exchange for a pair of block skates for Tommy. With attention to historical accuracy and detail, the beautiful illustrations of David Preston Smith take readers step-by-step through the process of how these old-fashioned skates are made, all against the backdrop of the Annapolis Valley in seasonal change. Tommy gets his new block skates just in time for winter!Vaughan, Garth is the author of 'Tommy's New Block Skates' with ISBN 9781551094991 and ISBN 1551094991.
