Heart-warming, funny collection of essays from days gone-by

Dale McIsaac grew up in a large, often rambunctious, farm family near Charlottetown. The Porridge is Up! Stories from My Childhood is a collection of stories from those years—from a time when a secondhand bike or a brand new pair of pants were a big deal. But this is not the story of angels—as McIsaac hilariously recounts, he and his siblings courted their share of trouble. The Porridge is Up is charming and laugh-out-loud funny; the tale of McIsaac’s strong desire for a box of Wagon Wheel cakes will make you laugh until you cry.
