Anna is the child of Mennonites from Mexico, who have come north to harvest fruit and vegetables. Sometimes she feels like a bird, flying north in the spring and south in the fall, sometimes like a jackrabbit in an abandoned burrow, since her family occupies an empty farmhouse near the fields, sometimes like a kitten, as she shares a bed with her sisters . . . But above all Anna wonders what it would be like to be a tree rooted deeply in the earth, watching the seasons come and go, instead of being like a "feather in the wind."

About the Author:

Maxine Trottier has written many award-winning children’s books, including The Tiny Kite of Eddie Wing (Canadian Library Association Book of the Year for Children), Claire’s Gift (Mr. Christie’s Book Award), Sister to the Wolf (Society of School Librarians International Honor Book) and Under a Shooting Star (Geoffrey Bilson Award Finalist). She was inspired to write Migrant after spending summers in Leamington, Ontario, where she encountered many Mennonites from Mexico.

Isabelle Arsenault is an internationally renowned children’s book illustrator whose work has won many awards. Her books include Alpha, Virginia Wolf by Kyo Maclear, Cloth Lullaby by Amy Novesky, Once Upon a Northern Night by Jean E. Pendziwol and Migrant by Maxine Trottier.

Fanny Britt and Isabelle Arsenault first collaborated on the graphic novel Jane, the Fox and Me, winner of the Governor General’s Literary Award for Children’s Illustration (French) and the Joe Shuster Awards for Best Writer and Best Artist. It was also named a New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Book.

·A New York Times Best Illustrated Book, 2011

"Without a heavy message, this sensitive offering captures a small child’s experience of constant upheaval as she flies like a feather in the wind." —Booklist

"The words and images could stand alone as feats of artistic excellence. Together, they form a package that should become a staple for kids learning about Canada’s diverse population." —Quill and Quire, starred review

" ... moving, inventive and thoughtful ..." —Kirkus Reviews
