Isla's Adventure
by Evan Bergen and Tedi Gilmartin

One summer day, Isla wakes up ready for an adventure, so she and her dog Lily set off to explore the neighbourhood. Along the way, Isla comes across two sweet dogs with big personalities – but without a home. Despite some challenges, Isla loves these dogs just as they are and she invites them to join her. When Isla faces a scary situation of her own, the dogs find a way to return her kindness.

Evan and Tedi know all about the importance of rescuing dogs. In their family, they have rescued three: the very same dogs from Isla’s Adventure! Evan and Tedi wrote this book together for their niece, Isla. Though not parents themselves, they have seen how quickly their nieces and nephews learn important values early on. They wanted to write a fun story that could teach them unconditional love and acceptance, and they hope other parents can also use this book to pass on these values – along with compassion for rescue dogs.

Evan and Tedi are wedding photographers from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and take their dog Lola with them everywhere.
