Review quotes

Skye, a girl living in an Indigenous community, draws a crowd with her stories, which were first told to her by her grandfather. Skye relays five stories, all focused on animals and all with a unique message and moral. The expressive faces of the animals and people add humor and charm to the soft watercolor illustrations. The book ends with a reminder of the connective power of stories, urging other children to become storytellers themselves.DANIELLE BALLANTYNE/ FOREWORD REVIEW
