about

With over 400,000 books already in print, the Dear Canada series has fast become the book series for children.

Each fictional diary invites readers into the world of a girl living through a particular period in Canada's past. Gillian Chan's latest addition illustrates the effect the Chinese Head Tax has on one young girl and her family. Mei-ling and her father are struggling to pay the head tax that will allow her mother and brother, who are still living in China, to come to Canada. They must have that money before the impending Exclusion Act bars any more Chinese from immigrating. What will happen if they can't come up with enough in time to reunite their family?

GILLIAN CHAN was nominated for the Governor General's Award for her first book, Golden Girl and Other Stories. Her recent releases, Glory Days and Other Stories and The Carved Box, have also received critical acclaim.
