What's Going On at the Time Tonight? is a sweet and rollicking rhyming book about a Newfoundland "time" (party) with a twist: it's underwater! The sea lice are boogying, the jiggly jellyfish are riding the wave, and everyone is having a good time tonight.

CM Magazine - September 13, 2013
"A terrific introduction to a customary practice of the people of Newfoundland and Labrador. The book can also serve as an important stepping stone for children to become interested in, as well as have an appreciation for, how people in other environments live, their cultural norms, values, and beliefs. Highly Recommended."
