To sketch Vancouver
From dawn until dark.
From Spanish Banks
To Stanley Park

As young artist Marina explores Vancouver from dawn to dusk, she records her impressions in her sketchbook. From Stanley Park to Granville Island, from Horseshoe Bay to Chinatown, Marina delights in the diversity of this West Coast city and brings its colourful spirit to life. With the combination of lively illustration and playful text that we know from a href=http://www.harbourpublishing.com/title/TheFerryboatRide>The Ferryboat Ride, My Vancouver Sketchbook is sure to delight both visitors and residents.
