Prize(s): Short-listed Foreword Indies Book of the Year Award - Children's Picture Books (2018), Short-listed Bill Duthie Booksellers' Choice Award (2018), Selected for IBBY Canada’s catalogue From Sea to Sea to Sea: Celebrating Indigenous Picture Books, a collection of 100 recommended picture books by Indigenous authors (2018) 

“Graceful, well-constructed rhymes (“Hello humpback/ ocean blue/ chatty raven/ mountain view”) pair with First Nations artist Vickers’s crisp, luminous scenes, with animals drawn in the bold, abstracted style of the region’s indigenous artists. ...It’s a gorgeous glimpse of the distinctive landscapes and creatures of the Northwest, and it will enchant residents and nonlocals alike.”

“... Hello Humpback! serves as an introduction to an area, a culture and an art style, and its contents can likely be appreciated by an audience older than that normally associated with a board book. Highly Recommended.” ~ Dave Jenkinson, CM (Volume XXIV, No. 22)
