Editorial Reviews

"This book will fascinate children expanding their horizons and learning about other cultures (or, in the case of Anishinaabe kids, their own)." - Kirkus Reviews"Reminds readers of the importance of critical self-reflection and of our connection to the animal world - two ideas worth championing at any age." - Quill & Quire, STARRED REVIEW"The stylized masks, soft colours and big eyes of the children convey a seriousness, almost an otherworldliness, to the animal/human relationship. . . . Haunting and thought-provoking." - Toronto Star"The ideas inside unfurl outside the pages into readers' own imaginative worlds." - Boston Globe"A stunning glimpse into the traditions of the Anishinaabe culture. . . . Highly recommended." - CM Magazine
