Biography / Administrative history

The husband and wife team of Anne and Alex Wyse have published three significant, innovative and award-winning books for children: "Alphabet Book" (1969); "The One to Fifty Book" (1973); "History Mystery: The Ottawa Book" (1981). The first two books were designed collaboratively with Algonkian band children aged from six to twelve years old at Kettle Point on Lake Huron. Each book received several awards including the American Institute of Graphic Arts 50 Best Books of the Year Award. Similarly, "History Mystery" was the product of collaboration with children aged from eight to eleven years old from the Ottawa school board area.
