Grant Park in the Atrium
This is a story about Luka, a little boy who becomes a GIANT. Every year he doubled in height and the villagers, only two feet tall, worried that he would destroy his village. They built a house in the woods and a big chair for him where he could sit by the road and do no damage. Luka was miserable sitting by himself but one day a big dog came along and changed everything! This is a story about how it feels to be on the outside looking inâ€¦ about the frustration that comes when you feel different and about how family can come in many formsâ€¦ even in the shape of a gigantic dog!
A life-long Manitoban, Adrian Hawaleshka has been writing for as long as he can remember. With the birth of his son Luka and the support of his wife Joleen, Adrian was inspired to write his first children’s book. The three of them live in Winnipeg where Adrian is an Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology at University of Manitoba.
