In Anything but Hank! Lebowitz and Wells combine the whimsical humour of Lewis Carroll with the adventure-narrative balladeering of Robert Service to spin an unforgettable tale of a baby--and a pig!--in search of a name. Their quest takes them from the city to the mountains, as they seek an audience with the wizard and his baby-naming Mexican beaded lizard. The story, accompanied by the gorgeously lush paintings of Orchard, is a delight for readers of all ages.
Zachariah Wells is a contributing editor for Canadian Notes & Queries, the author of Unsettled, a collection of poetry about the Arctic, and the editor of The Essential Kenneth Leslie. His three Biblioasis titles are the anthology Jailbreaks: 99 Canadian Sonnets, the children's story Anything But Hank! (with Rachel Lebowitz and Eric Orchard), and the poetry collection Track & Trace. He lives in Halifax, where he works as a freelance writer and editor and as a passenger rail attendant.
