News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

When it comes to classic Christmas tales, the pickings amongst new publications are pretty slim. But Waterdown Village Graphics and Busy Bee Toys and Books are currently featuring a stunning new picture-book, The Long White Scarf.

Stunningly illustrated by Mississauga-based artist David Craig, the story follows a scarf, first lost by Princess Victoria, as it makes its way back to her, as an aging queen.

Craig, who won awards for his work on a book about the Wright Brothers and is designing medals for the 2010 Winter Olympics, helped launch the sale of The Long White Scarf at Village Graphics last weekend. Framed originals of the paintings used to illustrate The Long White Scarf are also on display in the shop.

Never one to miss the opportunity to do a good turn, Village Graphics proprietor Dave Cooper has embroidered long white scarves, which will be offered for sale for $15; $5 from each purchase will be donated to the CHML Christmas Tree of Hope.

Village Graphics is located at 17 Main Street South and is open Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m-6 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Busy Bee Toys and Books is located in the Sobeys Plaza.
