We are over the moon excited to share that CARSON CROSSES CANADA, illustrated by Transatlantic client Kass Reich, has officially been on the bestsellers lists for 110 weeks!

CARSON CROSSES CANADA, written by Linda Bailey and illustrated by Transatlantic client Kass Reich, tells the story of Feisty Annie Magruder and her dog, Carson, who live in British Columbia, Canada, and their adventure setting out to visit her sister, Elsie, in Newfoundland. 

In their little rattlebang car, packed with Carson’s favorite toy, Squeaky Chicken, and plenty of baloney sandwiches, Annie and Carson hit the road! They travel province by province, taking in each unique landscape and experiencing something special to that particular part of this vast, grand country. For example, they marvel at the beauty of the big, open sky — and grasshoppers! — in Saskatchewan and discover the gorgeous red earth and delicious lobster rolls in PEI, before finally being greeted by Elsie — and a surprise for Carson!
