Praise

Praise for Proud as a Peacock, Brave as a Lion:
“A wonderful picture book, intergenerational, [with] great illustrations. Jane Barclay’s text captures a small boy’s love of his grandfather and interest in his past in a few, well-placed words. It encourages us to see the stories that are all around us and within us and it quietly honors the brave men and women who have fought and still fight for our freedom…. Powerful themes of war and peace well handled.”
—Carolyne Van Der Meer, juror for the 2009 QWF Prize for Children’s and Young Adult Literature
 
“…meaningful and engaging…. Barclay has taken on an important topic in an effective and touching way. Her poignant story introduces the young to the meaning of war and Remembrance Day…. There is a lovely rhythm to the prose that would make this a perfect choice by parents and teachers to read-aloud. Highly Recommended.”
CM Magazine
 
“…[a] beautifully modulated picture book about war and remembrance….”
The Globe and Mail
