Piau’s Potato Present

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Diane Carmel Léger illustrated by Tamara Thiébaux-Heikalo

Did a gift of potatoes in 1768 lead to a popular dish enjoyed by Acadians today? Christian Treitz, the youngest son in a German family immigrated to the Monckton Township, learns that the trauma of the Acadian Deportation is still alive. The Treitz family is hungry and cold. Luckily, Christian meets Pierre Belliveau, who could have left Moncton’s newcomers to their unhappy fate. Instead, the Acadian has brought with him the seed of a new beginning.
