I’s the b’y that builds the boat,
And I’s the b’y that sails her!
I’s the b’y that catches the fish
And takes ’em home to Liza.

“I’s the B’y” is a decades-old folk song that originated in Newfoundland but has been sung and danced to the world over. In this gorgeous picture book, Maritime artist and children’s writer Lauren Soloy honors the song and its birthplace with rich, captivating illustrations of bobbing boats, leaping humpback whales, violin-playing fish, dancing people, starry skies, and stormy seas. Full of undeniable energy and joy, this spirited picture book will have kids singing, dancing, and learning all about Newfoundland.

Includes:

  • Sheet music so budding musicians can play along.
  • A note from illustrator Lauren Soloy about the fascinating history of “I’s the B’y,” its distinctive words and phrases, and life in modern-day Newfoundland.
