Toronto district stars in heart-warming picture book

The Market Wedding
by Cary Fagan
illustrated by Regolo Ricci 

Morris the fishmonger and Minnie the milliner, fall in love and decide to marry. Morris, despite Minnie's objections, uses all their money to plan an elaborate wedding. He reasons that once their friends realize what a magnificent wedding it will be, they'll buy them the most lavish gifts. Morris' plan backfires, but it all ends happily.

Ricci's artwork accurately portrays a Kensington Gardens neighborhood as seen in the 1920s.
