    About "Hugh Brewster"

    1. Hugh Brewster

      Being able to create books about history is a dream job for me since I ve always been enthralled by history When I was growing up in Georgetown, Ontario, our house was just around the corner from the town library And I haunted its children s section reading sometimes four or five books a week Historical fiction titles by writers like Geoffrey Trease and Rosemary Sutcliffe were particular favourites I still treasure a copy of Ernest Thompson Seton s Two Little Savages that I was given as a prize in a library reading contest in 1960.Since ours was the only house in the neighbourhoood without a TV antenna on the roof, reading was my primary form of entertainment My parents thought their four children would read without a television to distract us And they were right, we did though we also showed up at our friends houses whenever our favourite shows were on Our family had moved to Georgetown from a small town in Scotland in 1956, when I was six years old When I was thirteen we moved to Guelph, Ontario, and I went to high school and university there My first real job after graduating with an English degree in 1971 was with then a fairly new publishing company in Canada As an editor for Inc from 1972 to 1984 in both Toronto and New York, I was involved in the creation of s Canadian children s publishing program as well as in the selecting of books for s school book clubs One of our early discoveries was the teenaged author Gordon Korman and his Bruno and Boots books Between 1984 and 2004 I was the Editorial Director and Publisher of Madison Press Books in Toronto While there, I helped to create a number of successful books for both adults and young readers including Robert Ballard s The Discovery the Titanic, that has sold over 1.5 million copies, and TITANIC An Illustrated History a book that provided inspiration for James Cameron s epic movie Among the award winning children s books that I edited and compiled are Polar the Titanic Bear, On Board the Titanic, First to Fly, and Journey to Ellis Island.The first children s book that I actually both wrote and compiled was Anastasia s Album The Last Tsar s Youngest Daughter Tells Her Own Story, which was published in 1996 and won a number of awards In 1997 I wrote the text for Inside the Titanic, which featured amazing cutaway illustrations by Ken Marschall The next year, with Laurie Coulter, I compiled a book filled with fascinating facts about the Titanic entitled 882 1 2 Amazing Answers to Your Questions About the Titanic Laurie and I went on to write To Be A Princess in 2001 which was a Silver Birch and Red Cedar nominee In 2004, the 60th anniversary of D Day, I wrote On Juno Beach which won the Children s Literature of Canada Information Book Award in 2005 The success of that book encouraged me to write At Vimy Ridge which appeared in 2007 and won the Norma Fleck Award in 2008.In 2005, I decided to devote myself to writing full time and have produced seven books since then The Other Mozart The Life of the Famous Chevalier de Saint George published Fall 2006 Carnation, Lily, Lily Rose The Story of a Painting and Breakout Dinosaurs DIEPPE Canada s Darkest Day of World War II was released in 2009 and was followed by the novel Prisoner of Dieppe in s new I Am Canada series A second novel, Deadly Voyage appeared in Fall 11 and for the 100th anniversary of the Titanic, I produced a large adult book entitled Gilded Lives, Fatal Voyage in Spring 2012.

    1. My 10 year old son checked this book out form his school library as part of a unit related to Remembrance Day He brought it home for me to read, as he knows I m interest in war history too Short and concise, it provided a nice outline of Canada s involvement on D Day, including plenty of photos and illustrations Recommended for young students interested in Canadian history, and Canada s involvement in WW2.


    2. This book is from the juvenile section of the library but provided a concise illustrated history of the role Canada played in Operation Overlord, the D Day Landing of June 6, 1944 It included setting the stage with background of WWII.
