Children, children. Gather round, your grandmother, and I will tell you of the time before the benevolent bears showed humanity how to live in harmony with the world. A time when humans ran amok, threatening to destroy the very world we all share so happily now. A time when the Big Bears made sure humanity paid attention to their message. And it happened here, in our very own Canada.'
‘A beautiful, visual-poem about motherhood and art.’ A poetic exploration of being both a new mother and an artist, told using her own unique graphic novel and fine art approach. When Alice was born her mother only found time to draw her while she napped. Gradually Alice is multiplied in a tapestry of selves, both large and small, while an overarching narrative whispers through the pages, musing on the meeting of former and future selves. At its core, Alice at Naptime tells a universal story, of a parent pining for past freedoms, while simultaneously descending down a rabbit hole of all-encompassing maternal love.
