Julie Affleck lives on a small island in Canada called Prince Edward Island. There she raises her four children while desperately searching for time to write!

She loves reading kids books to her children. Her favorites are any Robert Munsch books and the Pinkalicious series. She will always find time for Nora Roberts, Karen Robards, Dean Koontz, and Stephen King.

For a writer, Julie is not very good at writing about herself! 


A is for Applesauce (Arthur and Zita Alphabet Books) (Volume 1)

Genre: Childrens

A is for Applesauce is the first in the Arthur & Zita Alphabet Book series.

Nine year old Zita loves WORDS! and her favourite book is the DICTIONARY!

Today is “A WORDS DAY”. While she and her younger brother Arthur await the arrival of awesome Aunt Alice, Zita searches for all the words she can that begin with the letter A. A is for Applesauce tells of a trip to the Animal Zoo cut short, and other commotions, accompanied by A Words such as applesauce, ants, attempted arrest, angel food cake, awards, arguing, and antics.

As a “day in the life” family adventure with expressive and colourful illustrations, A is for Applesauce is a read alone or read aloud book to be enjoyed by both children and parents. A is for Applesauce is a good choice to expand your child’s A Words vocabulary using A Words in context and with Zita’s lively AWESOME A WORDS glossary at the end of the story.

For those interested, A is for Applesauce is accompanied by A is for Applesauce Word Play as a separate colourful activity book, directed to the grade three to five level.
