The Big Tease: A Story of Eliza Delorme and her Cousin, Édouard Beaupré, the Willowbunch Giant

$15.00

The Big Tease is a timeless story because we’ve all been involved in teasing to some degree, and often it has involved family. Time with family has always been important to Métis families. Like most families, there is usually at least one person who likes to tease others. In this story, it is Eliza, grandmother to author Wilfred Burton, and cousin to Édouard Beaupré. The Big Tease provides a lovely human touch to Édouard Beaupré’s life before his fame as the “Willow Bunch Giant” and his early tragic death took him from his beloved family.

Wilfred Burton’s imaginative narrative passes his grandmother’s story to today’s generation of story lovers. Illustrator George Gingras brings this true but somewhat embellished story to life with colourful images reflective of the Métis lifestyle at the time.
