Young Metisse may think she has two left feet when it comes to dancing, but her hands know how to coax beautiful music from a fiddle. If only everyone would understand. Girls Dance, Boys Fiddle is a funny but feeling story of a girl who has to challenge tradition to prove that she can fiddle with the best.

Carole Lindstrom's thoughtful story is warmed and brightened by Kimberley McKay's vivid illustrations.

"Even though the main character in the story is of Metis heritage,Girls Dance, Boys Fiddle is more than a story about a Native American girl who wants to fiddle, only to be told repeatedly that boys fiddle. It’s the story of any child who wants to play the fiddle, she just happens to be Native American - and a girl.  It could be any of us that want to do something so badly, and even though we keep getting told we’re too small, or not smart enough, or not pretty enough, that if you try hard enough and you’re heart is in it, you can move mountains.  Or play a fiddle." - From the author's website.
