Blue Heron Books is a wonderful book store. Hardwood floors, comfy chairs and the best book selection you could ask for. Shelley and her wonderful staff know every book in the place, and can help you find exactly what you’re looking for–even if you don’t know what it is yet. Blue Heron is one of my favourite places to visit. —
Thomas the Tank Engine first appeared in the Railway Series of books by Reverend Wilbert Awdry and his son, Christopher. He endeared himself to children by coming alive in the pages of the books and later made the leap to animated superstardom in the television spin-off series, Thomas & Friends.
He is counted as a friend by many Canadian children and this month Thomas is going to pay a visit to Uxbridge. This is one of only FOUR stops on the Canadian leg of his 2015 tour.
Besides having an amazing array of Thomas books on hand for the six day long Sidewalk Sale, Blue Heron will be participating in the BIA campaign to encourage little Thomas fans to enjoy their visit to Uxbridge with a Thomas-inspired game of I Spy (while the big Thomas fans get to explore the sites and shops of Uxbridge). Game cards will be available at the Uxbridge Tourism Trailer by the YDHR. The Grand Prize winner of four tickets to the final Thomas Train ride will be announced on Sunday, August 23rd.
Tickets available here.
Call the store to reserve your tickets…first event is January 20th. We are so stoked to be the lead-off event for Norman Doidge’s WORLD tour!
Saturday, December 6th from 1pm until 4pm drop by the store to meet Lee Bice-Matheson, author of Destiny’s Gate.
Live from a place of love. It conquers all that is evil.
Shaken by the haunting from Conall, Paige Maddison hopes to put it behind her. When Paige’s premonitions, nightmares, and ghostly visions return, however, she realizes there is no way of getting back to the normal she once knew. Try as she might to adjust to her new life at the O’Brien Manor, dark forces begin to brew on the grounds of the haunted O’Brien estate. Paige becomes the unwilling target of the Earthbounds, anguished souls who seek revenge and retribution.
But where there is darkness, there is also light. Through an enigmatic string of events that has her questioning who she truly is, Paige soon learns that she is not only being watched over by guardians of both the spirit and mortal realms, but also being called upon by a greater power beyond her wildest comprehension. As her world is turned upside down, Paige faces a life-changing dilemma: Should she embrace her special gift and fulfill the destiny that is unfolding before her? Or will she succumb to the evil that surrounds her and deny her true identity?
Destiny’s Gate, book two in the Paige Maddison Series, follows the young heroine on her personal journey of discovering inner strength, undying loyalty, and the profound power of unwavering love.
