A long-cherished children's classic is now back in print!

Breakwater Books Ltd. is pleased to announce the re-release of the best-selling Classic Children's Book "Down By Jim Long's Stage" by the late acclaimed poet and author, Al Pittman. He died on August 26, 2001 at the age of sixty-one, after a lengthy illness. He was one of Newfoundland's best contemporary writers. Al built an international reputation over the last 40 years creating award-winning poetry, plays and scripts for radio and television. Some of these include the Borestone Mountain Poetry Award, The Canada Council Arts Award, the Lydia Campbell Award, the Stephen Leacock Centenial Award, The Writer's Alliance Book Award for Poetry and has been inducted into the Arts Council's Hall of Honour. Up until his death he was a Writer in Residence at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College in Corner Brook, Newfoundland.

All new whimsical illustrations by Pam Hall dance through the pages with a sublime easiness perfectly balancing Pittman's rhymes. Her original work was the Winner of the prestigious Amelia Francis Howard Gibbon Award for best Canadian illustration.

his is a 25th Anniversary Collectors Edition reprint which generations of children have known and loved.

Now it's time for the next wave of youngsters to "meet the swordfish named Zoro who's really a smelt; and Rosie Rosefish who dreams of gardening under the sea; and Sam the ugliest of Sculpins".
