In this project works of beloved children’s author Robert Munsch have been translated into print and interactive Hul’q’umi’num audio books.
These translations have been completed in the Penelakut dialect and have received the support of the education departments of the Penelakut and Halalt First Nations.
We have completed two book “Andew’s Kwa’ulnus Yunus’s – Andrew’s Loose Tooth” – and “Tst Lhit’ut Mukw’ Stem! – We Share Everything!”
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Robert Munsch for his generosity in allowing us to use his work. We are truly honoured and inspired by his kindness.
We would like to thank Florence James, Penelakut Elder, for the translation of the text and Danny Norris, Halalt Elder, for his reading and ongoing language support. Without their participation and kindness this work would not have been possible.
We would also like to thank:
