The Old Series Canada and Series 2000

Titles in the original Series Canada and Series 2000 were published by Collier Macmillan Canada between 1978-1995. Some librarians have managed to keep old copies together with cardboard and Scotch tape, but they would be advised to move to the improved and reillustrated New Series Canada titles for any future purchases.

An asterisk indicates that a title is still available from EMC Paradigm, but only in the United States. Readers with a nostalgic interest might check Amazon.com or Ex-Libris for availability, often at a premium price.
