Treasures to Find
Dale McNevin is a much beloved PEI illustrator who has illustrated numerous books including Crosby and Me, Everything That Shines, and Three Tall Trees. Her characters from The True Meaning of Crumbfest were immortalized by the City of Charlottetown in re-created large statues painted by artists around the city.
Illustrator Dale McNevin is a native of Prince Edward Island. She started drawing seriously in 1990, and has since illustrated numerous books (including The Prince Edward Island Songbook series and the Zonta Club’s Making History: PEI Women of the 20th Century). She has had several showings of her work around the Island. Particularly memorable was a cheeky T-shirt design featuring a red-headed, braided lass flinging a bikini top into the Island breeze.
Dale’s illustrations are found in many Acorn Press titles including
A Long Way from the Road, An Island Christmas Reader, And My Name Is . . . Stories From the Quilt, the Bubba Begonia series, Everything That Shines, Tales from Willowshade Farm, The True Meaning of Crumbfest, Three Tall Trees and Crosby and Me. She has written and illustrated Treasures to Find, which was sponsored by the P.E.I. Literacy Alliance. Visit her website at dalemcnevin.ca.
