The Walking Stick by Maxine Trottier

The Walking StickThe Walking Stick, written by Maxine Trottier and illustrated by Annouchka Gravel Galouchko, tells the story of a boy in Vietnam who finds a walking stick near a Buddhist temple.  The walking stick becomes his companion in life and travels to him to Canada to live before he passes it on to his granddaughter.  She then carries the stick back to Vietnam with her during a visit there.

Anna seemed to enjoy the book.  I had mixed feelings about it.  There were some parts that I liked and some I didn't.  The illustrations are interesting and we spent a bit of time checking them out.
