School Library Journal Review
Gr 5 Up-This collection of folklore from a powerhouse team of Native authors, including Buffy Sainte-Marie and Richard Van Camp, will wow readers with traditional and futuristic tales based on tribal-specific cultural teachings. Stories are central to Indigenous people, and reflecting their varied tribal differences, the entries in this collection vary as well. Storytellers sought permission from their elders to share these in their comic form. The comics include those involving futuristic worlds-in "Strike and Bolt," two brothers representing lightning and thunder outdo modern technology-and entries explaining the stars in the sky and the coyote who still howls at the Creator for another chance, such as in "Coyote and the Pebbles." The full-page illustrations in some selections and the bright colors in others add depth and understanding to the narratives. The artwork is as diverse as the stories collected, and readers will eagerly anticipate the next vignette. VERDICT A great addition to any library where comics fly off the shelf.-Amy Zembroski, Indian Community School, Franklin, WI © Copyright 2015.
