Old Enough
Author: Peter Eyvindson
Format: Paperback
  • Peter Eyvindson, a Saskatchewan storyteller, and Wendy Wolsak, a British Columbia artist, have joined their talents in order to create their second children's picture book, Old Enough. Their first endeavour resulted in the publication of the delightful Kyle's Bath.

    The text is easy enough for primary children to read independently. However, Old Enough is a book with a message that seems to be directed more towards parents than towards children. It tells of the relationship between a man and his son.

    There is a repetitive quality to the book, which is evident in both text and illustrations. Holding his newborn son, the father dreams of what they will do together when he becomes "old enough." These wishes are illustrated by tiny figures cavorting on the quilt. As the boy grows, the father becomes caught in the demands of an adult world. He has "time enough only for his meetings, his conventions and his work." The father's dreams become the boy's solitary activities. This gives the book a sad, melancholy quality. This impression continues to the end of the book, in spite of the author's attempt to develop a happy ending.

    Wendy Wolsak's detailed black-and-white illustrations interpret and enhance the text superbly. As in Kyle's Bath, she has used native people as models for the characters. Calendars at the side of the double-page illustrations mark the passage of time and give a continuity to the characters as they mature. Her soft-textured illustrations add to the wistful quality of the book.

Then one brave Little Girl seeks the wisdom of the ancient Old Turtle, who sees that the people's Truth is not a whole truth, but broken.

Traditional Territory: Inuit
Format: Hardcover
  • This pan—Arctic Inuit legend, which tells the story of a friendly giant, is lightheartedly retold, featuring sweeping illustrations.
    Inukpak was big, even for a giant. He loved to walk across the tundra, striding over the widest rivers and wading through the deepest lakes. He could walk across the Arctic in just a few days.
    But being so big, and travelling so far, Inukpak was often alone. Until one day when he came across a little hunter on the tundra. Thinking that the hunter was a little boy alone on the land, Inukpak decided to adopt him. And so, from the shoulder of one of the biggest giants to ever roam the Arctic, this hunter experiences the world from Inukpak's perspective.

On This Long Journey: The Journal of Jesse Smoke, a Cherokee Boy, the Trail of Tears, 1838
Author: Joseph Bruchac
Format: Paperback
  • In 1838 in Tennessee, the Cherokee Nation is on the brink of being changed forever as they face the Removal — being forcibly moved from their homes and land, in part because of a treaty signed by a group of their own people. Sixteen-year-old Jesse Smoke has been studying at the Mission School, but it has been shut down and turned into a fort for the ever-increasing number of soldiers entering the territory. Now Jesse has returned to his home to live with his widowed mother and two younger sisters. All hope lies on the Cherokee chief, John Ross, who is in Washington, D.C., trying to delay the Removal. Then one night, family members are suddenly awakened, dragged from their homes, and brought at gunpoint to a stockade camp. From there, Jesse and his family are forced to march westward on the horrifying Trail of Tears during the long, cold winter months. It's a difficult journey west, and Jesse's not sure if he and his family can survive the journey.

One Small Blue Bead
Author: Byrd Baylor
Format: Hardcover
  • A band of men sat huddled in a cave

    Where coals of fire glowed warm and red.

    Boy lay curled on a bed of leaves

    But he sat up when an old man said: "This thought keeps spinning in my head.

    There must be caves just like our own

    Somewhere

    And other axes made of stone

    Somewhere

    And other men like me."

    Though only Boy shares his dream, the old man leaves the tribe to search for what the world may hold. Boy does the old man's work in his absence and watches hopefully for his return...

    For any good thing

    Can happen when

    The world is full of

    Tribes of men

    Who know that they have brothers.

    First published in 1965 and long out of print, Byrd Baylor's powerful story is newly illustrated with Ronald Himler's vigorous yet tender pictures.
