Get ready to go global!

Our cellphones, our clothes, our food: All are everyday things we consider essential, but we seldom think of what and who is involved in making them and getting them into our hands. In Follow Your Stuff, award-winning children’s author Kevin Sylvester and business professor Michael Hlinka team up again, this time to tackle the dynamics of the global economy, examining the often-complex journey of ordinary goods from production right to our doorsteps.

Using familiar examples, easy-to-follow charts and graphs, and a fun, accessible tone, Hlinka and Sylvester introduce young readers to concepts such as relative value and fair wages and how to think critically about our purchasing decisions. Sylvester’s lively illustrations add even more kid-appeal making this sequel to the critically acclaimed Follow Your Money the perfect introduction to socio-economics and an eye-opening essential read for young people.

  • Proven formula: Creators Hlinka and Sylvester received multiple award recegonition for their previous economics book. We've netted over 7000 copies of Follow Your Money so far
  • Kid-friendly approach: Like Follow Your Money, this is a highly visual, fun and relatable way to tackle the complex subject matter of global markets
  • Timely topic: International trade is a constant news item, making this especially relevant today

Kevin Sylvester is an award-winning children’s book author, illustrator, and a former sports broadcaster on CBC radio. His books for Annick include Basketballogy, Baseballogy, and Follow Your Money. He lives with his family in Toronto, Ontario.
