i love this book. LOVE. IT. it totally reminds me of one of my favourite canadian kid's shows growing up, jeremy the bear. this show RULED. it was a combination of stop motion and cell drawn animation and looked very similar to the scenes in this book. i remember my favourite bits were when jeremy would ice skate on winter lakes made of aluminum foil... gold. you can watch a bit of jeremy here, it's pretty damn awesome.
